No one is saying discord is bad, because of it being proprietary. Yet, when open source alternatives work aswell as discord then yes. They are actually better. Why? Because you can actually open it! Look inside it, change it. An actual freedom, giving and promoting program! It promotes YOU and even respects you <3
What do you mean in a STALLMAN way? No, as in i can think for myself and would like to see, what this program is doing, may i? Call it a sensual stallman, if you can’t handle it, without the stallman lable.
Neither, is anyone saying that any users are obliged to do this or that, just because they use Linux. It’s a mentality thing like, (us vs they) like many users are saying to watch ads to support their favorite creators, as if there are CERTAINLY NOT other ways to support their creators. (There are much better ways, to do so. Patreon just to name one out of many)
By supporting ads for example, to make anyone think they support their creators is simply not entirely true. They actually support Google and it’s monopoly in marketing etc. Because creators get their money from google and their ads, not by you watching an ad and then the creators magically cash in on that. It does not work that way.
