> All those users and apps were counted in usage figures for as long as I was there (and maybe still?) Of the millions of apps that Glitch tauts, I’d guess a significant percentage are either barely changed from the default or do nothing but return a 500.
I've always wondered could this sort of behavior be considered fraud? Kind of like how I think some platforms allow bots to boost usage statistics, etc.
And, if the company doesn't work out, can the investors sue for that reason?
This is pretty egregious. Are there any current or former staffers (throwaway accounts if you value your NDAs) who can attest to this? Was there any reference document internally which discussed what constituted the appropriate "caliber" of work experience?
All of these changes look good and quite frankly progressive (highest made a max of 4x the lowest, for example). Now that they haven’t delivered, it looks like it was just talk.
A shame really, because I’d like to see this kind of transparency catch on, but calling out the hypocrisy will certainly put downward pressure on it.
