idk masto groups would sort of be a nice way of trying to kill slack and would also be a nice way to bridge to eg. matrix channels !/

I know it's ~complicated~ but come on.

We've always had groups on the fediverse. It's really not that complicated. What's difficult is achieving consensus amongst the dozen or so different players currently supporting groups - or in progress such as Masto. We currently support six completely different group implementations and I refuse to add any more. It's time to get rid of a few of them. I'd gladly drop mine because it's a brutal hack,  but so far nobody else has a method that works with private groups and comment permissions and works from any fediverse platform today.  We'll see what Eugen comes up with but in my view it's all classic xkcd.com/927

@jonny I think most people want encrypted chat for private group stuff rather than public micro-blogging.

@az
I think the people that want encrypted chat are not using slack

@jonny hmmm maybe, I probably shouldn't project intentions into people I don't know.

It would be nice though!

@az
I hear what you're saying though, the ideal case would be encrypted. but I'm thinking "single identity, want a new group of people" thing to replace slack and why not masto too?
