In reply to @zethra:matrix.org
Emi (she | they): sorry your matrix chat is getting spammed. What do you mean by room alias?
You know you a room has a name like #ritfoss:matrix.org? Rooms can have any number (incl 0) of those, and pretty much any user can create one on their own server. Each time someone makes a new one, it posts a message in chat like
16:25:03@emi:alchemi.devEmi (she | they)So someone kept doing that over and over again (using bots) with really long room aliases that also said some pretty nasty things, effectively making the room unusable
16:28:44@zethra:matrix.orgzethraIf their isn't a way to block people from doing this, that's definaently a bug. You said someone from the matrix project was fixing this?
16:31:08@emi:alchemi.devEmi (she | they)Yeah, the fix is in the works
16:31:25@emi:alchemi.devEmi (she | they)The temp-fix is just using an invite only room

18:39:14@freenode_tg-ritfoss1:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss1 <x​XRedDragonXx> There was a real chance for the open source community to break into the mainstream here especially if this phone was cheap, but unfortunately the combination of terrible hardware and even worse software is absolutely abysmal and it's incredibly expensive.
18:52:25@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho yeah I've gotten the growing sense that purism has a signficant level of the grifter nature
18:52:44@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzhothe pinephone and pinebook seems to spark little but joy amongst people though

19:40:15@freenode_tg-ritfoss1:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss1 <n​lMeminger> when you dont show up in channel for a while, and there are 2000+ unread messages
19:50:42@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho I'm tempted to say "serves you right" but I'm just so happy to see you here I wouldn't do that

23:30:02@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho @nlMeminger I share your reticence to provide personal detail, but I'm not sure I can fathom what sort of "sign up" doesn't involve some sort of ID

01:16:42@freenode_tg-ritfoss1:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss1 <n​lMeminger> I get they’re trying to reduce spam, but I don’t want to give me email address, and I’m too lazy to get a burner
