'Screwed-o-meter' that can check 'This net service is really okay?'
The world is full of various internet services and web applications, but there are many problems in using them, such as sudden revisions to the terms of service, APIs becoming unusable, and passwords being leaked. 'Screwed-o-meter' has been released to evaluate how problematic or undesirable a particular service is based on certain criteria.
After accessing the above URL, check the various boxes that apply to your situation regarding the service you are using. The list contains 27 items representing potential service issues or concerns, and it calculates how many boxes were checked at the end of the list.
As you check items such as 'I am not paying for the service' and 'No one is paying for the service, not just me', the screen gradually darkens and the smiley face My face becomes cloudy. Does it mean that not asking for a price for services is a sign of service decline?
'In fact, they don't get paid for their services.' 'No binding contract on availability.' I have a ruined past
