XMPP is such a pain in the tukhas. Is this REALLY the best we can do?

I know I’m a tech nerd because instead of having nightmares walking somewhere naked, I have dreams where XMPP OMEMO doesn’t work and I *dont notice* until it is too late. Dash it.

The problem with an eternally extensible protocol is that unless basic expectations are met across the board, it becomes a disgusting muddle for users. If Alice’s client has different extensions than Bob’s, and Charlie’s server doesn’t support them, then everyon becomes a goofus schmuck. Funtimes.


@Shufei What is a protocol for you ? I am voluntarily asking you this question.
