There’ll be no consitent community then, it’ll be one time thing on very stable product.
It’s 1/10th of an EC code. An EC code everyone fucking uses and a small userbase sends out.
No one is hiding anything mate, if you want to see whats being said, you can pay and see (later on, nothing is hidedn as of now). We’re not having Threema or any stupid shite like that so theres no actual shady shady shit, DNSTARS, as a legal entity is not allowed to take payments from “shady” people so we have to receive funding from the userbase. (im saying “us/we” from a perspective of the society).
Its dividing because only a small percentage of users actually pay for upkeep, and then when that upkeep gets shat on by a dude who ddos its kind of a pain. There needs to be real infrastructure here and real return for brass staff who wake up everyday and start knitting the backend. Lurkers don’t see that, and lurkers who aren’t willing to help this place continue being a place aren’t [probably] welcome by the people who pay for the place. If that makes sense.
