@amolith @ray true! I’m working on getting my everyday non-technical contacts who are interested in (read, “not averse to”) learning about making their daily lives a little less invaded to understand points like these. I think the majority have been so thoroughly misled that they have trouble imagining something as ubiquitous as SMS, for example, is a nightmare.
Thanks for the clarification. Indeed people just don't know how things work and believe anyone that would let them think that everything is encrypted on their server or that this thing that doesn't work is the provider fault. It is also funny that people that say they care about their safety just don't selfhost or use encryption directly client side. @amolith
