just a warning about chani project forums.
i got registered there some long time ago, posted a few times, decided that the community was a bunch of immature hippies, taking offense at the
slightest chance of constructive criticism (something that's not really tolerated there).
in the meantime i've offered them my opensourced chat solution because they were considering launching one. few people tested it and liked it, but
'the top' didn't bother, so whatever. then i left it.
up to one or two days ago, when the admin spammed everyone with the information of their new video chat and that everyone should try it.
so i did. logged in as guest ('you don't have to use facebook to sign in') - yet it tried to open facebook in new browser tab automatically, with a
message about the chat and the website to share. extreme privacy violation, my trust in that website tanked immediately.
so i've posted what i think about it. i've mentioned my chat as well, as an example of how it can be done reasonably and - most of all - securely
for end users. not to push it, since it's opensourced, so there's really no way i could gain, i don't even care since it's not in development
the admin (Acolyte) replied - ignored/twisted my claim, claiming i did use facebook to sign in, and accused me of pushing my own solution.
i've replied that's not true, that his 'solution' violates privacy and that he's twisting the facts.
i got banned (like i care) and the whole forum is suddenly visible only to those signed in (it was free to read for guests earlier today).
STAY AWAY from their forums. there's something extremely fishy going on there.
and people think it's the ATS that's not to be trusted... due to several things across the time, i know better already.
