    I don’t think removing protonmail is the correct solution.

    This is a list of email providers that facilitate temporary email addresses. So adding outlook and Apple to that list makea more sense to me?

      But inclusion of Proton domains makes many Proton users to be unable to register on websites. It is only helping google to keep monopoly and it is simply privacy harming

        How do you know this?

        Besides that, this is just a list providing burner email addresses. Adding Outlook to this list makes sense. If sites are using this list as a blocklist that would cause issues, forcing them to not use this as blocklist anymore.

          If I read correctly, in a PR someone makes an argument that Proton and Tuta are newer services that advertise privacy and anonymity as opposed to more well established services like Outlook or Apple mail that do end up linking mail to an identity.

        The list that the repo maintains is for services that can provide burner or anonymous emails.

        You can sign up for Proton Mail anonymously, as demonstrated by a frequent contributor to that repo in issue #414.

        Therefore, it seems appropriate for it to be on that list, as annoying as that is.

        I’d hope that site providers wouldn’t just summarily ban any domains on that list but I understand why they may take that shortcut to reduce spam/abuse if they don’t have adequate resources to handle it other ways.

            Yes, that’s why I proposed to add Outlook to the list too?

            Mozilla provides a similar service I believe?

              Yes. Aliases is not disposable mails. Moreover SimpleLogin (Proton aliasing service) forbids to use it as disposable in ToS

              You can try by yourself (without “grey” ip)

          I have a bad feeling that’s what a lot of site providers will do, and you can almost guarantee the big tech data brokers will push them to do so, especially Google/Gmail. They will own our lives, by force if necessary.

    Leave Proton alone ffs, without them I would have my Internet seriously limited by default by UK isps and the moronic Government that just wants everything to be it’s own propaganda.

      That’s why I posted this. I hope we will find a way to unblock Proton

    Blocking disposable emails is like fighting a hydra, they will always outplay a black list. This just hurts the legitimate users not on a popular provider.

    I don’t get the point of all these disposable email filters. It’s not hard to buy a new domain and set up a wildcard email server.

    If the repo owner declined the request, that’s pretty much the end of it. They own it, they can do what they want.

      He thinks that it is because of anonymous registration. But Outlook provides it too…

    Why does anyone care? This library has no public dependants, and low double-digit weekly downloads. Nobody’s using that crappy library in the first place because the idea as a whole is incredibly dumb and futile.

    This is for 0.1x engineers that can’t figure out a captcha on their side.

      Unfortunately, I contacted support of some local websites, and they said that they wouldn’t white list any domains and I need to contact this list owner

    This is the second time this month some overzealous moron decided to add these because they can be used for burner accounts, as if other services cannot. People like this are why we as a species haven’t advanced more.
