    I support this, 3 votes from a paying Proton user, only to the extent that “feature creep” doesn’t apply to actual, needed/required features to maintain the security & usability of the current services (Mail + VPN). The services will need to evolve, of course. The statement is painting with a very broad brush. In my opinion, focusing on the current services offered or already in the pipeline is much better than trying to create a browser, password manager, etc. where a plethora of good, secure options already exist. No one knows how best to utilize your resources than you. I believe the fundamental request here is that you don’t venture off on too many tangents from your core services and services which may enhance them (again, where an appropriate alternative is not available).

    I can’t fathom how people here are asking for Proton Mail to give away things for “free” all while citing Google (!) as an example. Google is NOT free - YOU are the product they sell. They use your information, including all email information - including the body/text of emails - and sell this info. to 3rd party advertisers among other things.

    As far as the “customizable” options - surely everyone knows that there is a massive difference in cost between filters/folders and adding, maintaining, etc. additional storage/servers. That’s not an apples-to-apples comparison.

    Anyone using PM’s competitor pricing as justification for this argument - why not just use the competitor? If that works for your budget, why try to force PM to work for you when you’re already aware of an alternative?

    And $10/year for the services that Proton Mail offers - first person to show that they can create something similar to Proton Mail, with the exact same security & encryption practices, hosted on their own hardened servers in Switzerland, I’ll gladly pay for 10 years of your service up front.

    I cannot agree with this. Anyone who wants to use the features of PM, but not pay for said features, has several other alternatives. Try setting up your own email server using the costs that you are suggesting PM allow. I personally value my security and am in a position to pay $48/year for the Plus Service. I’m glad to know that some of that cost offsets the free users of PM. Just like I’m glad to know that since I’m able to run a Tor bridge, doing so will help someone else in a less fortunate situation (whatever it may be) be able to connect to Tor through my bridge. Not everyone is going to be able to do this - I’m fortunate that I’m able and that others before me provided access when I needed it. I don’t find PM cost structure to be prohibitive in the least. I used a free account at first and once I was confident of the security I upgraded - even though I didn’t really “need” to.
