A website who is describing Telegram as "longtime secure messenger"and places it above Element/Matrix in its ranking doesn’t seem trustworthy at all even if the rest of the article would be 100% correct.

This is a major fuckup.

Completely agree. There is no proof at all that Telegram is secure. It’s also a closed platform. Currently it makes no money. But very soon I’m sure it will start serving Ads or premium features - all that server power and bandwidth isn’t free.

Yeah I agree, but most of the article is generally good.

Ngl, that article is pretty bad. Recomends non-free software and services, leaving better alternatives out.

Recommending Bit***** as an alternative to YouTube, recommending Telegram over other alternatives, or recommending Medium as an alternative to Blogger is terrible. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such a bad list…

Yeah, exactly. Was actually impressed such a “pro-privacy” site could miss the point so badly…

Much appreciated!
