Just like Twitter was compromised by glowing scum, so is almost every other social media network today.>Any 'private' messenger that requires a phone number is a scam.
Yep. If a service requires a phone number, it is NEVER meant as a real "privacy" service. Emails can be spoofed easily, plenty of free temp disposable email services. Phone numbers with complex verification systems on the other hand? Very hard to spoof without a lot of hacking skills.
I'll just conclude our internet is becoming rapidly compromised, centralized and corrupted by governments all over the world. 10 years from now I don't even know if I'll keep paying for internet service to be honest. p2p networks and sites like this are the only reason I still have service, as well a handful of sites where I can purchase goods online. If that ever goes, I'm bailing and canceling service just like I did with cable television years ago.
