I have to wonder why #eelo is so popular among people who are trying to "de-google" their lives and use something privacy-respecting and open source. I've personally experienced their censorship on Telegram when I asked a few basic questions about user privacy and how it truly differs from LOS with microG.
I also saw that you have to have an account with /e/ before you can use some of the most basic features. It's also incredibly buggy with reports every day about things breaking.
Maybe I'm being too stereotypical and, if so, I do apologise. It just made me immediately think of a shady marketing ploy on their part.
Sorry for all the notifications 🙈
I just wanted to make sure these were part of the original thread instead of seemingly random and detached
