End to end encryption in proprietary software (like WhatsApp) makes little to no sense. If it's not 100% FOSS, you cannot inspect the code, you cannot know if there's a backdoor in the encryption, you have to rely on trusting the company / developer. Doesn't matter if it's "mostly" open source (like Chrome/Telegram), all it takes is one line of code to exploit you. Security should never rely on trust.

Honestly if anyone's gonna solve the impossible programming problem of the century, it's not gonna be a silicon valley startup looking to optimise their subscription-based ingredient delivery service, it's gonna be the guy who makes dwarf fortress because one day he decided to try and implement something like randomly generated recessive genetic disorders in sheep

We are getting asked about "verified accounts" quite often recently, so lets try to clear this up: There are no verified accounts on Mastodon like there are on Twitter. Some Mastodon instances have a custom emoji that looks like the verified icon on Twitter and people put that in their display name, probably because it looks fancy. It does not mean anything though.
