Discord is valued at 1.65 _billion_ dollars.

What kind of person can look at that and go "ah, yes, this free chat service is totally not gonna screw us out of private data for profit"?

@spacekookie Hello, here's a somewhat recent source (dec 2018) indicating it is now more than **2** billion (apparently the 1.65 billion dates from this summer?): businessinsider.com/discord-fu

@spacekookie personally I never tried this platform (used to have a xmpp server, now using my own mattermost instance with close firends), but I feel a bit unconfortable that discord as a platform is being pushed by e.g. rustlang as a community platform: rust-lang.org/community

Don't see why they can't use mattermost, or even zulip (never tried that one, though) that was proposed as alternative.
