The Matrix folk are working on improving resource usage, and I really hope they will succeed with that. But I personally prefer XMPP's model for it's simplicity (e.g. bugs in Matrix's sync protocol have caused security issues in the past).

What's important to me is that both protocols share the same goals of decentralizing online communication away from centralized silos. If that happens successfully, I really don't care what tech it's based on 🙂

Remember that the leak is supposed to be from 2019. That tell us that, 2 years ago, Facebook was already linking whatsapp data inside Facebook, even when you don't have a FB account, and pushing data from facebook to your #whatsapp data, like the gender. Two ways binding.

Checking the #FacebookLeak, some people in there doesn't even have a FB account. But it turns out they have a WhatsApp one. In the leaked data WhatsApp users' ID seem to start with 1000. It also includes gender, which is not something one declares when registering on WhatsApp. 1/2

@bugaevc Are you aware of a bug in wl-copy where it sometimes does not copy and keep the old clipboard?

Stallman had some good ideas in the 80s, and he and the FSF have been stuck back then ever since. Their opinions are incongruent, and have morphed into ideological nonsense that often hurts user freedom.

„ geht nicht mit Mastodonten, du musst dir wo anders nen Account holen“
„Ok, das ist mir zu kompliziert, ich bleib doch lieber bei Twitter.“
