who cares about the community? i never understood this. You realize discord puts you into no server and tells you to create one the moment you start it.
Nobody forces anyone to get exposed to any servers.
Yeah its not FOSS just like many other products i use.
I use discord in a server with my friends for 5 years. Its convenient.

There are competitors but nothing that will take over it.

There are huge problems with child grooming, pedo's. the works. Join a "public" channel and see how shit the community really is.

Bloated botnet, there are better alternatives. Also /g/ users have no friends so there's no need for a chat client.

I think that's a good thing to get people on one platform rather than setting up bridges and having 9999 accounts (see pic related)

That's just a boogyman, I mean you can read Discord transparency reports and see that they dealt with them.

No they're, you just said it yourself at "There are competitors but nothing that will take over it.", as there isn't any better alternatives that can be recognized, notice also how you haven't name dropped them, so I guess they exist in your imagination.

Discord is not only proprietary, but is ran by Satanist furry pedophiles who hate our LORD. They are run by Satanic Anti-Christ nutjobs who hate GOD. I believe it was Satan himself who decided to create Discord.

No accounts is even better.
Imagine your client creates a certificate after installation and so you can friend/unfriend others. Since this is locally saved it works across all servers. The serversoftware is free and can be setup by anyone that wants it too, so everyone can host a server on their own machine. You can transfer your certificate to other machines too if you want. The client is capable to setting an overlay up in any game it recognizes if you want, so you see your people talking ingame.
It is called mumble, it is completely free (even for commercial use) and has better audio than discord, but lacks all other features (which can be a good thing too).
>Nobody uses it
My friends and I do.
>>
>>81049313
Would you say the same if the Satanic Discord pedophiles were after your own children? Not a chance, that's why we need a law to protect our children!

They say that a leopard doesn't change its spots, but neither do the pedophiles, they just change their skins and try to hide in the shadows.

Did we just give a pedophile the tools to protect himself in law? No! This law will expose the true animal!

you dont need the element client to use the matrix protocol
>>
>>81049136
I liked Discord 2016-2017 era. But now it's filled with trannies and morons protecting the trannies and giving them mod.
When you find a Discord that isn't doing massive amounts of tranny moderating, then it's great. But those are rare these days.
Trannies will eventually kill your Discord server because their hair trigger moderating will get worse and worse.
>>
>>81049381
What’s your point?
Element is still the comfiest I’ve tried.
I have personal server and me and my 2 friends moved to it from teamspeak.
>>
>Has no toxic community problems
HAHAHA good bait
>>
>>81049394
>What’s your point?
point is that if you are soooo against discord and make the step towards matrix just go all the way and host your own matrix server and make your own client. element deletes channels on their servers all the time. its getting pretty bad.
>>
>>81049136
Many pa/g/eets use Discord, they are just too afraid to admit.
>>81049180
Nice bait.
>>81049200
>>81049213
Correct. The best way to use it is with friends and nobody else.
>>81049393
Go whine about trannies somewhere else. If you don't like them just avoid the communities where they are vocal.

If you want an open source solution, just use IRC or Matrix.
>>
>>81049413
>just go all the way and host your own matrix server
I do.

Why should I care? I have my own server for me and my friends.

Also
>Has no worrying competitors
Is that supposed to be a good thing?
>>
>>81049136
I tried to use it recently. I stopped again because off mods. Discord mods are overbearing and the users are used to it. Every time you attempt to talk to someone they want to move things to a different channel. Or some mod pops up to give a "friendly reminder". Or some bot is spamming my inbox with an autistic list of rules.

VoIP isn't worth it in my experience. I don't want to talk to randoms. If I want to talk to real friends I have other ways to do that. Also it's a piece of shit application that rapes my CPU. I don't understand how poorfags cope with having it in the background all of the time.

So they banned half the problem? You people are annoying as fuck but at least we used to be able to watch you fight each other. Now all you fags do is take pop shots at each other from your hugbox. Both sides circled the wagons.

You're going to get us all killed with your stupid bullshit pissing match.

There are groups made for organized harassment.

has a terrible reputation of being run by furries and full of pedophiles.

I used Discord for a few years after my friends wanted to swap from vent/skype
The memes really write themselves
when a server I was very active in had several admins ousted for child grooming, the new admin taking over being a tranny, and many of the good OG members getting banned for knowing too much

Does a bouncer exist for discord? Can I rent a VPS, keep it connected 24/7, and use it as a proxy?

Yea no as someone who defended that shit for 3 years I can say that its full of fucking trannys and basedbois, go fuck yourself OP I will never reinstall that shit ever again, but its fine microsoft is coming to fix it for you all :)

I use it because there's no alternative and there are a lot of comfy/funny/toxic tech/gayming/crypto communities. However discord inherently sucks ass and it WILL become absolutely pozzed sooner or later. It's also slow buggy bloated electron shitware. Maybe next time everyone can switch to something FOSS and good but let's be honest, it's probably not going to happen, a big reason being that the FOSS alternatives tend to be garbage.

Yes, but Discord is not that platform.

Implying half the Discord team aren't in on it themselves. They're furries, trannies etc.

Riot, Element, Teamspeak?

It is a botnet though and there's nothing you can do other than to not use it.

>>81049136
Because every server is ran by a sjw overlord and you have a laundry list of rules to read and abide by before joining. They also stick you in their little vetting chambers so they can see if your worthy of the primary chat. Just like reddit itself basically. Discord is reddit the chat client.

Use matrix.

Who the fuck cares about this zoomer skype shit. Wait, it's not even the shitty skype because you can't video chat via webcam but only share screens in a shitty quality.

This chinese tentcent botnet needs go. There was a opensource github project called Cordless which used API from fagcord but the dev team just cut the life support. Chink tech at best

There's a massive cp and grooming problem on discord, the platform is one competent journalist away from being fucked into the ground like habbo hotel.
The company has struggled with revenue for years and this rumoured buy out is the only saving grace Citron can take with the company, letting Microsoft use their money to deal with external issues that could come from this hypothetical pedo report.

In addition to pedos you also have troon servers that groom kids to self harm and be trans, and you have the typical alt right servers. The platform is a massive ticking time bomb and because it's all stored unencrypted they are gonna struggle justifying their inaction to feds and the mob. Especially when the next fedora school shooter is revealed to have planned it in discord.

>Tell me why no one here uses it
Poor quality of the VoIP part, mostly. Discord is cloud-based, so enjoy your random lags and disconnects due to overloaded nodes. Switched back to Teamspeak and Jami.
>>
>>81051089
Yeah me and my boys have a self hosted matrix server and then just use mumble for VoIP since we prefer it and used it before discord

I do use it because my friends use it but we're probably moving to matrix at some point (presumably when there's native conferencing)
