please let's put that cursed thing where it belongs
in the trash
@lumi meh all my friends are on discord, little chance i could convince them to switch off of it, so i'll keep using it for the time being
@pyromage i understand ♥
at least we're not arguing about where it belongs
@lumi cant til I find a reasonable alternative honestly
@pry for most of its functionality: look at xmpp
for the rest: soon™
@lumi I need the rest lmao
@pry tbh i think the biggest thing is where people are
discord would not be valuable without its users
it wouldnt have gotten so big without their pretty religious hype squad
their strength is being able to use your friends against you, and more than anything else, that's the reason i hate it so much
@lumi network effect is powerful
@pry and walled gardens are plain evil
I've seen SO many subreddits and other groups turn to Discord to function like a Wiki, but making read-only channels that are designed to be read chronologically as a sort of record. What's that, you want to cross reference something? TOO BAD HOPE YOUR SEARCH DOESN'T RETURN 1000+ MESSAGES
@ichii @lumi @pry I'm inclined to believe that, because it's likely legal has noted there are at least a few unsavory Discords out there, and as soon as one with illegal content (planning terror attacks or distributing child porn) goes to trial, ALL of Discord's money is gonna dry up really quick (See Gab).
i'm open to using it again if someone wants me to, tho i'm not going to use it without e2e encryption
i really hope that message retention extension gets passed for matrix because i want data hygiene, not storing stuff forever
all that being said, i much prefer xmpp
@lumi the problem is we need some good, open source and decentralized alternative for it, cause these don't really exist
@selfisekai gotta work on it, then!
