"Centralised messenger Signal has just announced that they are making part of their server software closed source. They claim it is to fight spam, but by using closed source they make it impossible for outsiders to verify the truth. This is worrying.

We really, really need a fully open, decentralised alternative to Signal.

There are several alternatives being developed, please support them:

➡️ @matrix

➡️ @delta

➡️ @briar

➡️ @Jami "

    There are ways to figh spam without going closed source, although the lient is open source and E2EE its still necessary to have everything open

      Can you explain what the other ways are? Because I’ve seen everyone talking bad about this, but nobody offering real alternatives.
