Look GitLab, when I say "remember me", I don't mean "log me out after two weeks", I mean this is my fucking computer just let me stay logged in for god's sake

@Gargron they're trying to stop you from committing software crimes you insufferable hack

@Gargron I'm sorry actually that was too rude. Pretend I called you a dweeb instead.

@Gargron Look Mastodon, when I say "search", I don't mean "just show me my own posts", I mean this is my fucking computer just let me search stuff for god's sake

@Gargron You joking? I despise those options. Maybe I am paranoid but what if someone from some white power group stole your laptop and messed with your code and your reputation? 3.2 seconds to enter a password each time is worth it.

@Gargron GitLab engineers in the mean time think you access GitLab "by IP on port 80" through nginx and HSTS. No joke. That was a real thing. ⚰️

@xj9 @Gargron pleroma is guilty (or at least used to be) of this too

Next up: Github opening a small window on the site, where a cloaked figure whispers: "The significant owl hoots at night." Just above a password entry.
