WhatsApp Scare and Signal - The Art of Not Asking Why

JTR:

Last night, Signal stopped working for many folks including me due to “technical difficulties” which have yet been fully resolved. It seems this is the result of so many people running away from WhatsApp because the sheep got the idea that suddenly Facebook is a bad company that grabs their data and can read their chat. I’m grumpy, and I’m tired of stupid.

I do think that people misunderstood and over-reacted to the change in WhatsApp’s policy, but any time someone calls people “sheep” I stop reading.
