Since Superhuman is doubling down on read receipts in email, maybe we can get the likes of @Apple to build in defenses in popular clients? That would both thwart Superhuman and all the other nasty read-receipt peddlers in the market.

Or even better. Maybe the EU can update the GDPR to outlaw this invasive practice altogether 🙏❤️

Also, Apple could simply outlaw the practice in email clients offered through the App Store.

You can follow @dhh.
