@dotemacs They finally refunded the purchase, luckily, but I had a very stressful few days.
"Encouraging" people to put in long hours is always a red flag for a company for me, it shows that they don't value their employees' long-term well-being and are more focused on dubious short-term productivity increases.
@stavros glad to hear it.
Why did they do it in the end, due to public shaming?
I had their app, but uninstalled it after reading your story!
@dotemacs I had filed a formal complaint before publishing the post and they replied to that, said they were sorry and refunded me. I'm not sure if the post played a part, but I guess it did.
