(Reposted) Somehow, my link died within seconds of me posting. Not sure if glitch or if you guys are deleting all posts about the microsoft situation. But, lets try once more.
Lots of topics on this flooding your system, and lots of them point out the death of the previous things Microsoft have bought. I had an inside friend once who worked with microsoft who shown me a private chat log between the dev team of skype and himself when he asked them why skype got worse since Microsoft acquired it. Lets just say you don't want to find out yourself.
Microsoft has killed every chat app its owned. MSN, Windows Live Messenger, Skype. Discord is next.
You've already got a lot of users threatening to quit. 10 billion dollars may seem like a lot, but is it worth your dream being destroyed? The loss of privacy and security in Discord's userbase? Your name going down in history as the next sellouts?
I don't know what your situation is, but, if you care about the future of Discord, don't sell to Microsoft. If you don't give a damn about your user base and just want the money, then you'll sell, and we'll know you never cared about us.
