The Right Way would be to be up front about it from initial page load, but you'll see a lot of pushback until people either feel informed about what's happening or desensitised to the reality of it.
Same, I've used calc & vw units for font sizes a fair bit but if someone knows the logic that led to this I'd be interested to hear it
Dev: "This is ridiculous, I won't support this garbage"
CEO: "Hey, I loaded the site on my mobile and it looks like it's not responsive"
Dev: tap, tap, internal rage, tap "It's fixed boss"
Is it better for designers to do whatever makes them happy or to obsess over following the "right" path?
pours one out
It is pricey, but it's worth pointing out that those tools work on the basis of screenshots/static images whereas this lets you annotate live websites. That's pretty powerful. Something like Bugherd offers similar functionality (at a more reasonable price per seat) but I'm pretty impressed with how simple this is.
Does anyone else take this sort of stuff as reminder that, hey, you're doing fine? We all make mistakes, we all have to accept 'good enough' on every project at some point, nothing's perfect at any level of the game.
Get the sense that might not be the case in the rabid world of Design Twitter though, "omg, an opportunity to score points on another designer"

Honestly don't know what to make of this or the criticism of it.
Like, what are we doing? Yeah, the idea of a calendar for men is dumb. Flower scented soap for women and grenade scented shower gel for men is dumb. But let's not pretend there isn't a whole world of neutral products in between (because it's just a linear scale m i rite?).
Whatever, this calendar says it's for dudes. We'll laugh and say "oh you" or we'll get mad and say "burn down the patriarchy", but everyone it's a ****ing calendar. It's a ****ing bath bomb. It's a ****ing razor (writing this from the bathroom ¬_¬).
We could be out there actually burning down the patriarchy...
