I talked to Discord's CTO at PAX East last week, figured I'd ask about available positions in security engineering. He tells me with a straight face they don't have a dedicated security team because they expect their engineers to be "well rounded" and they all take responsibility for security.

Basically, all you would need to do is fork / have something like this, work on the GUI to make a clone of Discord, and add "servers" (MUCs)

Oh, don't forget the circle avatars. Those at the most important feature that will keep your users coming back.

This should be "source" enough.

You're not only selling anonymous aggregate data by using this service, you're selling everything up to your identity. It popped up out of nowhere with nameless entities behind its funding, was shilled on various forums and gaming websites until the core userbase grew and brought into it, all for the purpose of cashing in on user data. Absolute proprietary trash of a "service". You must be retarded to use this willingly, and yet such services are let thrives all the time.

This is the worst attitude one could have.
Because they're in some botnets from day one people just give up instantly and use it as an excuse to join an infinite amount of new botnets and give their data to every asshole on earth. Thats why it came this far with the botnetting madness. If you have any dignity you take measurements against the botnets youre in so they stop making money off you in stead of supporting more assholes and not thinking about it.

Whats the fucking point? How many of those do you actually use? This is why Discord has such a 'normalfag' rep because you faggots keep spamming and adding these random bumfuck servers and have never had a single meaningful conversation with anyone in them.

Holy shit go back to Facebook.

Discord users have nothing to hide because all they do is play video games. You really expect them to be able to critically think?
>>
>>59508146
Before I get shit for not acknowledging the various hardware router exploits done by the Chinese and NSA, that still has the SSL problem a lot of the time and IIRC the NSA's router exploits were done on demand, they required the active interception of the shipments and modification of them, they were not for passive collection, so unless you *really* have something to hide, you won't be affected.
