Is this "childish graphic with pandering message" thing a trend now? MS Teams does this a lot.

@GeoffWozniak Oh this is even worse though... writing/phoning "home" is the _last_ thing my secure messaging app should ever consider doing, especially about anything I said.

@feonixrift Yes, it's a bizarre choice of phrase. Why would my inbox want to write home? It *is* home.

Is it having an existential crisis?

@GeoffWozniak Especially given the colloquial meaning of 'phone home' as 'spy for originator/manufacturer'.
