I don’t think people on this sub use it, but it’s great news for us. The worse it gets the likelier people move on.

    Looks like Discord will do a Reddit in the near future.

    I recommend switching to Matrix.

      the problem isn’t switching, the problem is making all the other people using It to switch too, not everyone cares about security or ads

        There’s also privacy issues with Matrix:

        • Account deletion on Discord: username becomes [deleted]
        • Account deletion on Matrix: will not delete username
        • GDPR-compliant account deletion on Matrix: will not delete username

        Discord is also one (admittedly very lousy) company, while Matrix starts with the privacy issues and just gets worse

        Edit x2: I can’t place a parenthesis to save my life

          Go, change it! It’s open source.
