Moxie Marlinspike leaves encrypted-messaging app Signal:

Moxie Marlinspike, the co-founder and chief executive of encrypted-messaging app Signal, has resigned.

He blogged it was a "good time to replace myself as CEO" after working on Signal for over a decade.

Signal recently enabled crypto-currency payments within the app, which has concerned some users. Mr Marlinspike remains a board member of the Signal Foundation, while the board's executive chair, Brian Acton, becomes interim chief executive.

[...] Mr Marlinspike - whose real name is Matthew Rosenfeld - blogged he had always hoped to reach a point where Signal could "grow and sustain" beyond his involvement.

"I was writing all the Android code, was writing all of the server code, was the only person on call for the service, was facilitating all product development, and was managing everyone," he wrote. "I couldn't ever leave cell service, had to take my laptop with me everywhere in case of emergencies, and occasionally found myself sitting alone on the sidewalk in the rain late at night trying to diagnose a service degradation."

More than 40 million people now use Signal.

    Only conservatives tend to spout such nonsense.

    Hilarious. No, I'm not conservative in the least.

    There are times to be an asshole,

    Agreed, which is why I briefly entertained the notion that Trump might actually accomplish anything when he got elected.

    but if those aren't very few and far between then you're just a rude lazy cunt

    Ah yes, continuing to come across well here

    that uses anger to force your way through problems. Your quote about brains is hilarious, remind me what group believes Donald J. Trump's words? Going so far as to commit insurrection for a liar shut down multiple times by courts with not a shred of even halfway decent evidence?

    You seem to think that I support Trump, which is continuing to be hilarious.

    Welp, marking tangomargarine as yet another moron preferring their partisan identity politics over the truth.

    Clearly an AC who has never read anything else I've posted on this site. Thanks *so* much for your input.

    "Is that really true?" "I just spent the last hour telling you to think for yourself! Didn't you hear anything I said?"

    I think there has been progress. First, we got all the racists to deny they were racists, out of shame, and say things like "I'm not racist, but . . .". Now we got conservatives to deny being conservative, in much the same way! I'm not saying that tango is another khallow, but he does seem to share the sort of libertarian leet haxxor political views. He is afraid of CoC's and SJWs, and believes s/he is where they are out of merit, not privilege.

      Fuck you, Cultural Marxist rat. It's not privilege, but birthright and should be guarded way more fiercely.
