@Wolf480pl @sir @minus fwiw I use Matrix because E2E is as simple as pressing a button (I've only read about OMEMO for XMPP, maybe it's the same-ish, I don't know)

My sudden realization: people who are naturally kind-hearted aren't automatically virtuous: some folks let their character rely on their disposition, and they're secretly really mean and nasty individuals.

People that want to punch other stupid people and have dark thoughts yet still crawl out of bed to smile and be a productive member of society -- those are the folks heavily relying on their virtues to overcome their disposition.
