Good points. Also it’s a bit of a stretch to say the different parties are using it for free anyway, because professionally maintaining infrastructure in a way where even a bit of resilience is expected is not cheap. The budget for running these self-hosted platforms can easily be eaten by one person’s salary + infrastructure costs. It in many cases would probably be cheaper to just pay for Slack, but because of some requirements they rather pick one of the open source ones and do what they can within the allocated budgets. I doubt there’s any malicious intent in these situations, or any wish to just be freeloading, but something a bit more complex.
Ofc would be nice if money was flowing the right direction.
looking at the demos at their website https://www.synthesia.io/ , while impressive they are also pretty uncanny.

It’s hard to get rid of video ads with pi-hole afaik, because pi-hole works on the DNS level and video ads are a few layers higher. For normal ads I don’t seem to need an adblocker anymore, pretty much the stock block lists and a few I found that were recommended, but video ads still need the adblocker.
This tool looks awesome!
