Pinboard's Heroic and Lazy Stand Against IFTTT(

    He's annoyed because IFTTT used to do all the work to tie services together themselves (ie Pinboard never actually integrated/wrote any code for IFTTT's V1 API). Now, IFTTT has written a new API and instead of doing the same thing in-house again, they want to get developers to integrate. However, they're being passive-aggressive about it, and now they have shitty terms of service.

    They're sending out emails that are making it seem as if companies like Pinboard are being obstinate when in reality IFTTT is being manipulative. I think Maciej is perfectly justified in writing this.
