Personally I think the idea is kinda cute but at the same time I feel like these themselves were the first part of the downfall with their proprietary protocols and clients, the beginning of spyware, corporate control over messaging, paid services and so on. They were the first behemoths usurping the messaging market for themselves, limiting interactibility, accessibility and custom clients.
If I want to do "retro" messaging, I go to chatrooms, or use XMPP or IRC. They're free and open source and much closer in spirit to what most of us are here for I feel. :pc:

Why not use both? I just have Mercury running in the background on my phone and MSN whenever I'm on Windows (10 or 9:cool:, and if anyone wants to reach out to me personally, they can.

Feel free to give me an add on escargot:
inkerlink@escargot.chat

I usually always have it running and am perpetually online so, I'm pretty easy to get a hold of.  :ok:
I would love to talk to some people using it, kinda hard to find them though

So far the only way I was able to add anyone was A) Getting friends to try it out and B) Adding my address to a list in the official Escargot Discord server. And I suppose now this thread is the third way.
