in the trash

@lumi cant til I find a reasonable alternative honestly

@pry for most of its functionality: look at xmpp

for the rest: soon™

@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

@pry @lumi aye, unfortunately it's the same problem that facebook has, everyone uses it because everyone else uses it

@yisraeldov @pry I prefer xmpp but sure it is an alternative

neither seem satisfactory for the average user though...

@Akio @yisraeldov @pry telnet with end-to-end encryption

so ssh is best chat protocol

@Akio @pry @lumi Does xmpp keep a history of the chat ? I don't remember that it did group chat well either, or provided good encryption.

@yisraeldov @Akio @pry it can keep history on the server side but i have that module disable as i don't like the concept and want to stay away from it

it does have good e2e encryption via OMEMO

@lumi @Akio @pry Ok, well the history is an important feature for keeping everyone up-to-date when you are working with a team, so people can see what they missed when they are offline, I think this is one of the reasons that irc falls short.

@yisraeldov @Akio @pry yeah, my opinion on it is mixed

bounded chat history is probably a good compromise
