Feedback giving and receiving is really important, and I've found it can make someone's day to give them some feedback that helps appreciate the things they've done.
Something I've tried - and regularly failed - on doing is providing microfeedback (regular small pieces of feedback as and when folks do things)
However, Julia's point about asking first is something I've not considered before, so I'm definitely going to keep that in mind.

The real learning is that lots of people don't know what they're logging. Logs are dangerous, and you should regularly check they don't contain anything you wouldn't want made public
A "no logging" VPN service had millions of user logs exposed on an open Elasticsearch server, including plaintext passwords, geo, & IPs and took 2+ weeks to close after being notified. Lesson: Commercial VPN services lie. A lot.

I feel personally attacked by this tweet. I don't know how I'm going to continue to grow my wardrobe in a post-COVID world
My fiancé’s entire wardrobe is all tech “swag” that you get from conferences and joining new communities lol
