Is reprex SPYWARE?

I tried reprex::reprex(si = TRUE)

The first what it does, it tries to transfer images accross the whole internet. Is this the intended behavior for reprex-beginners?...

Could not fetch
HttpExceptionRequest Request {
host = ""
port = 443
secure = True
requestHeaders =
path = "/1OhesHg.png"
queryString = ""
method = "GET"
proxy = Nothing
rawBody = False
redirectCount = 10
responseTimeout = ResponseTimeoutDefault
requestVersion = HTTP/1.1
(InternalException (HostCannotConnect "" [Network.Socket.connect: <socket: 476>: failed (Permission denied (WSAEACCESS))]))
Error: pandoc document conversion failed with error 61

And later: Error in ensure_not_dogfood():
! Aborting.

... I'm afraid this package is a joke.

Have a look at the source code for yourself:

So why is it requesting ?
And how to disable this behavior?
