See my last name in the domain? I'm a developer, blogger, and publicly active. I don't have the benefit of getting dirty under my own name. I assure you that your data is not transferred to third parties, even I do not know about your requests to ChatGPT. You can see for yourself by examining the code, it's opensource.

❤ Support Develop⚓︎

Sponsorship makes a project sustainable because it pays for the time of the maintainers of that project, a very scarce resource that is spent on developing new features, fixing bugs, improving stability, solving problems, and general support. The biggest bottleneck in Open Source is time.
