@plausible I don't agree with everything on there. Email sequences can be very helpful as a user (if they are opt-in) and A/B tests don't have to make your product more addictive, but make sure you're developing the right features.

But I think I'm getting your underlying point of that there are better and less shady things to focus your time and energy on (e.g. product development)?

@bruce for sure. it's more of a list of things we decided not to do and why rather than a list of things you should not do. many of these can be ethical and useful too if done correctly. we also have a list of the things we do here plausible.io/blog/startup-mark
