OAuth2 *in practice* is abused to control what applications can access YOUR OWN mail.
Do you need to register your slippers or mailbox key with $YOURCOUNTRY's Postal Service before you can open your mailbox and get your mail out? No. But that is what Google and Microsoft do with OAuth2 in practice.

Wat heeft ‘de hardwerkende Nederlander’ aan een aantrekkelijk ‘vestigingsklimaat’ terwijl (het recht op) wonen voor velen onbetaalbaar is? Wat heeft ‘de kruidenierszaak’ aan een belastingparadijs?

Dr. Täuber was punished for exerting her academic freedom. The same court that allowed the UG to fire her also made it clear that it was the university’s negative reaction to an essay about her experiences of gender discrimination at the university that “seriously disturbed” their work relationship.
