I hate that google calls standard IMAP auth “less secure” while simultaneously being restrictive about who is allowed to use their OAuth login. They make life harder for our users and tell them there is something wrong with our security model when really the issue is bureaucracy

@danrabbit what adds insult to injury is how they started enforcing this ridiculous policy on oauth years after basically building a oligopoly on mail providers.

They straight up broke several open source projects overnight for a huge number of users.
