(#pdogumq) @prologic@twtxt.net I just thought it was trying to be too many things at once, I don’t want a new crypto currency thing, I don’t want another SMS and calling app, when I already got Truecaller to block annoying people from calling me. They also preach open-source and yet parts of the app have been close-sourced already.

Still none of this would have been that much of a problem, if the whole thing just wasn’t too little, too late. When I tried it, only one person I know was willing to give it a chance, as it’s not that revolutionary and most people already got burned by apps like Keybase in the past, so at this point the solution isn’t another app that will probably be bought by someone and go to shit like all the ones before it, but rather a protocol like XMPP, which has many clients and can’t just he bought and abused.


(#pdogumq) @prologic@twtxt.net This is the colse-sourced part: https://www.reddit.com/r/privacy/comments/qlw1ag/signal_is_adding_a_closedsource_spam_reduction/
So far it’s only a spam filter, but it’s still code running on the server that no one can look at, so counts in my book.

Also I guess my arguments about the protocol and crypto aren’t the strongest, but the truth is that I just don’t like the fact that it’s just another similar protocol and similar crypto that I want to have absolutely nothing to do with.

It’s the same as brave browser, I’d never download it, because I want a browser, not adware, crypto-wallet, torrent client and other garbage I do not like.
