#Discord Is Not An Acceptable Choice For Free Software Projects
"Use of Discord by a group discriminates almost totally against those who prefer or, due to circumstance, require privacy for their own personal information, such as IP or related geolocation. You cannot sign up for Discord anonymously." "This excludes many people from your group by discriminating against those who insist on their human right to privacy."
@Soft_Missy Your requirements may differ from mine of course. For me, @matrix is a natural fit. It allows to run your own instance if needed. It has E2EE built-in. There are multiple implementations for both server and client. Some people favor Signal, but that's a no-go for me due to centralization and only their blessed client being allowed to connect to this central service. For some communities, #RocketChat or #Mattermost are options. Don't know any other alternatives that would fit for me.
