#Signal turning into a crypto-ponzi currency scheme?

Surprise!

That Signal:
- isn't really free/libre software (as Moxie denied freedom to redistribute modified version)
- would *never* federate (political choice of centralization)
- updated server software wasn't published
- invaded people's phonebooks
- runs on Amazon+NSA's infrastructure
- is virtually impossible to use out of Google's infrastructure -
- etc.

...didn't seem to be enough to alarm Signal users.

@jz Aren't forkes actually allowed? I remember somehow that he just doesn't want forks to use their ecosystem.

@jz I know about that case, but indeed, the F-Droid build in this pipeline is a fork, the binary misses all the google stuff for sure. I'm also not happy with this situation, believe me.
