  • Matrix is bloatware.

    The resource consumption for chat rooms is absolutely ridiculous compared to XMPP and IRC. It’s so bad that I now believe the protocol is inherently flawed or absolutely unsuitable for realtime messaging.

    • XMPP: Good mature protocol but poor client ecosystem.
    • Matrix: Unsuitable protocol for realtime messaging with relatively good client ecosystem.

  • Is this to be Lemmy’s future? I think that we don’t have to worry much about this.

    The fact that lemmy is open source will ensure that sooner or later someone will develop a solution to the problem if it gets too bad.

    The motivation of the lemmy developers is actually to develop a good platform. Unlike reddit where the only and sole motivation is money, that makes a huge difference.
