  • Ne he's not. He uses his foundation to avoid taxes and even gets praised for it. This video provides a pretty good explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OH4uh8cHuto

    Jewish woman kicked out of cafe after complaining about antisemitic graffiti scrawled all over bathroom, getting berated by workers
  • "Zionism = Fascism"
    "Your neutrality/apathy is enabling genocide"
    and
    "Free palestine"

    If you call this anti-semetic, you actually deserve to get kicked out. None of the messages even mention Jews, but Zionists can't accept any form of criticism so they just call everything antisemitic.

    Fuck Zionists

    Sen. Bernie Sanders opposes giving Israel $10 billion in aid
  • I am anti-zionist, as Zionists are anti-human rights, steal land from innocent people and see themselves as something better.

    Kill all Zionists

  • Ukraine had Soviet nukes, and gave them up for security guarantees with Russia.

    Ah yes, that worked out really well for Ukraine /s

    Trusting Russia is a mistake

    Discord is on a quest to become a better messaging app
  • There's Revolt and Matrix, both are open source and can be self hosted.

  • TIL that XMPP is defined in an RFC. You're correct, I wasn't aware of that. I really don't understand why the IETF take such a decision though. I don't know why these guys are defining high-level protocols for things like messaging at all.

    But back to your earlier points:

    For example you can't have end-to-end encryption if you use a non-standard protocol

    This doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Matrix has E2EE while using a "non-standard" protocol. So does Signal, in fact, it created the strongest E2EE protocol out there.

    VC startups like Matrix only increase fragmentation of the ecosystem

    Every new project that is created increases fragmentation. So does Revolt, Discord, Skype, WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, etc. These all use "non-standard" protocols.

    Also, the author of RFC 6120 is a Cisco employee, how is a multinational corporation better than a VC-funded startup? XMPP is an open standard, just like the Matrix protocol. It doesn't matter who created it.

    PlayStation keeps reminding us why digital ownership sucks
  • Nah, they have a clause in their EULA which allows this, it's ridiculous. Piracy is the only solution.

  • Who defines standard internet protocols and how is XMPP one of them??? "Standard internet protocols" are DNS, HTTP, TLS, etc.

  • VCs suck, but Matrix is open source, everyone can self-host their own server, write their own client or even fork the entire protocol.

    Open sourcing the app

    @[email protected] have you ever thought about making the app open source? I've used Connect for a little bit and I really like it, it would be really cool if the app was open source. You practically don't have anything to loose, as you don't sell the app or insert ads and trackers. Lemmy is an open-source plattform, and many (if not most) other apps are also open source, I think Connect should follow that direction. This would also allow you to publish the app on F-Droid.
