What we really want people to understand however, is that Open Source in itself does not guarantee any privacy or safety. It sure helps with transparency, but technology by itself is not enough. The fundamental benefits of Heml.is will be the app together with our backend infrastructure, which is what really makes the system interesting and secure." — https://heml.is/

Hi:

Agreed. I won't support heml.is if it's not libre software, as it
seems to be the case. They want 100k $ to fund non-free software.
That's something I don't think people should support.
