@thomaslewis I only use it for a handful of communities I can't force to uproot.
Network effects are a pain. So this is harm reduction, at least, until somebody release a working open-source client with privacy-first options.
I'm glad I don't use Discord. If anyone wants to use something else, there's Matrix, and I'm pretty sure there is a Discord bridge for Matrix.
@frostotron I went looking for the bridge, but I'm not familiar enough with Matrix to understand how to set it up. I assume I'd need to also run a Matrix server in order to run the bridge to Discord? These things need better documentation...
@smudge Since the client isn't open-source and I don't have wireshark running, I can't say for sure. The point appears to be to help you set up connections to other accounts on other services, but given what I have seen of payloads sent to the discord servers, everything that scan finds is almost certainly passed along whether you want to set up that connection or not.
