Why do I authorize random pump.io servers around the world, with unknown security measures, to "change my profile" just so I can follow their account?

that was an initial concern of mine when I first tried pump.io
although I trust the magic behind the process I'm still curious whether there is a simple answer for that.

AFAIK, the permissions are just "basic and complete" like that. Those can be refined in the future, of course.


If it helps, if you use a non-web client, you can add people without logging into (and therefore, authorizing) any other servers.

Has this question been brought to Evan's attention?
