How pathetic of Signal, first they blocked all forks from using their server or their name, so they weren't open to cooperation and federation, and now that Iran censored them, they want other poeople to help them selfhosting proxies to them.
I am against censorship but I don't like their modus operandi.
The whole point of having secure reliable messaging platform is that we do not trust developers and have it #opensource.
Just imagine Telegram having the same kind of financial ties to Kremlin as Signal has to US government.
It will be Telegram's crucifixion all over the internet and stories how Russia has backdoors in it.
