Discord is valued at 1.65 _billion_ dollars.

What kind of person can look at that and go "ah, yes, this free chat service is totally not gonna screw us out of private data for profit"?


@pezzoDiPeco I mostly use IRC. But if you don't like that and have an online community there's mattermost and rocket as FOSS alternatives.

@spacekookie @pezzoDiPeco Thanks for the alternative recommendations. Yah it makes me feel icky and weird how discord is nonchalantly pushed in all sorts of communities as the default way to communicate. Especially in political organization contexts.

@spacekookie @pezzoDiPeco matrix.org is not even a user-facing thing so it's kinda funny that you mention it.
But until Riot makes their redesign I guess there won't be any nice client (nheko and Fractal look nice tho)
