People are perpetually popping up in all my media streams insisting that online voting is the way forward. It seems so obvious. And yet, it's simultaneously completely wrong. If you think that online voting is a good idea, you must (seriously, you have to) watch this video.
Realise that just about every other democracy uses a system similar to the US' (in theory at least, and only for the actual vote).
@meejah I'm pretty sure there's a lot of online voting going on in Canada... perhaps only at the local level... but that's a very slippery slope... will see if I can find a reference or two.
@meejah gulp: https://www.canada.ca/en/democratic-institutions/services/reports/online-voting-path-forward-federal-elections.html This *does not* bode well. Not well at all.
@meejah yup. I've been running a bunch of RocketChat instances for years - it's much better than MSFT Teams, Discord, and Slack (along with any/all other proprietary options).
