Discord is terrible. There are Lemmy project matrix rooms.

Discord is where most working class people are online though, and it’s a shame so many privileged leftists act like Goldilocks when it comes to how they reach out to working class people.

Should we do the classic IT guy thing where I recommend to people a niche, barely used but superior alternative that they inevitably never use? I’m totally sure if I pitch “Lemmy project matrix rooms”, I’m likely to reach a large amount of working class people…

It really sucks how privileged and picky some leftists are. Wal Mart is terrible too-- do you judge working class leftists for shopping there when it’s the only viable option?

By that reasoning, lemmy and the rest of the fediverse is also just for privileged leftists? Also, how do you equate this with any type of political ideology? You made a post in c/asklemmy asking about lemmy discussions on a different platform, not “is there a discord room that aligns with my specific political ideology”. Not to mention it’s a centralized platform controlled by a corporation, the complete opposite of what the fediverse is supposed to be. Discord could go bankrupt and be completely gone tomorrow, what of your community then?

Also equating discord with walmart isn’t quite accurate, since people go to wal mart because there are no alternatives. Online there are many alternatives, and they are what you make them. If one of your biggest gripes with matrix is that it is “barely used”, then why not start using it and try to get others to do so as well? That doesn’t seem to be a valid reason to not use matrix in place of discord.

You realize most of us use Lemmy AND reddit, right?

Also, how do you equate this with any type of political ideology?

Because Lemmy is a space for leftists and I’ve seen countless discussions like this where instead of getting off their high horse to reach more working class people, privileged leftists insist on staying in the corner in niche spaces and not reaching out.

You made a post in c/asklemmy asking about lemmy discussions on a different platform, not “is there a discord room that aligns with my specific political ideology”.

Given the fact that Lemmy is a leftists space, it was implied that a Lemmy Discord would align with leftist ideologies. Or are you confused about whether Lemmy is for leftists?

Also equating discord with walmart isn’t quite accurate, since people go to wal mart because there are no alternatives.

I said no viable alternatives, not no alternatives. This is the Linux argument all over again.

Just use Matrix.

I can invite you to the rooms if you have Matrix user.

I’m interested in reaching a large amount of people, not a tiny amount of people. I’m interested in a Lemmy Discord for specific reasons and disinterested in small platforms for similar reasons.

matrix

tiny amount of people

small platforms

I think this is out of discussion already. No Lemmy Discord and I don’t want nor expect it in any form.

If people care about their rights, would not be using Discord with existing functional replacements.

Reminder that you speak about community and not your job or classroom.

Great, so why are you here in this thread? You don’t want Lemmy on Discord but I clearly do. Do you go to basketball communities and complain about how you don’t care about basketball? What a strange, strange way to inject yourself into a discussion.

Because you are asking about the existence of something and I am telling you about current situation and how I am not going to support such option.

( Should I remind you that you are in a public thread in a community called AskLemmy which is broader about all Lemmy users? )

I mean, you didn’t even start by saying there isn’t a Lemmy Discord. You immediately just recommended something else instead of even thinking about why I asked for a Discord specifically.

And I told you that there was not later and acted as a first suggestion telling you to use that.

Great. Seems to me a lot of leftists prefer painting themselves into a corner and then wonder why leftist spaces are lacking. Disappointing but unsurprising. Deleting this thread now, thanks for wasting my time.
