Not only was the initial announcement by @Raspberry_Pi pretty tone deaf, but the follow up is nothing but unforced error after unforced error!

Imagine that, as a hacker focused brand announcing to your audience of hackers on a hacker-heavy social network, you've proudly hired a surveillance cop?! When the backlash unsurprisingly arrive you then dismiss all of their concerns as childish and trolling?!

Is this the first brand meltdown on 'mainstream' mastodon? It would make me seriously reconsider buying from them in the future if it wasn't already impossible to find stock anywhere.
