Like giving up on making crypto-over-SMS because... er... reasons? (like if everyone in the world had a plentiful data access...?)
Way before the outrageous bullshit blog post (and CCC talk) there was the f-droid/LibreSignal debacle:
Basically saying "i deny YOU the freedom to distribute modified version of my 'free software'" should have been enough to alarm everyone..
I installed Signal recently because of two people who wouldn't use anything else, but I just convinced one of them to set up XMPP over Matrix (iOS user and all XMPP clients we tried are 💩).
Gaaaawd I wish there was something like Conversations on iOS!
