Thoughts on hosting changes

This is ridiculous. Four years ago Repl.it called out Glitch for doing this exact same thing, and said they would “never block pinging services or make any abrupt changes that will break your apps.” What happened? I thought your infrastructure was built “in a way that doesn’t make it super expensive on us to ping your repl to keep it up?”

Now they hide pings behind paywalls silently and call it “deployments”. I understand free computing power is a crazy ask, but at least don’t promise it and masquerade as a Robin Hood for bot developers…

Just as a cherry on top…

We will never ban pinging to force people to upgrade by taking away features.

Aged like milk.
