Tried out the terminal multiplexer. Had a problem/question. Seems the community is only on . After unsuccessfully looking for alternative forums gave up and registered a discord account. Verified mail. Verified mobile number. Captcha'd half dozen of times. Tried joining the zellij discord. Flicker. Website goes in reload loop. Account is now disabled because "We've found your account to be in violation of our Terms of Service or Community Guidelines." Fuck you, !

And pretty please, free software projects, don't have your community in proprietary walled gardens like or you have no control over. You're doing your users a disservice. Use or or whatever. There are enough free alternatives.

Thanks for listening.

@tsdh >Account is now disabled because "We've found your account to be in violation of our Terms of Service or Community Guidelines."
did that actually happen?

@tsdh zellig was one of the few multiplexers that I got on well with when trying it. Such a shame to know it's using Discord for community discussion.

@jeang3nie In the meantime I've found out they also have a matrix room. It's the second badge at the top of the github README.MD. That's the reason I couldn't find it when text-searching for keywords like chat, matrix, IRC...

@tsdh I had to create a work specific discord account (a client uses it for a project) and I got the ToS violation ban treatment a few days in, even though all I was doing was having low-volume text-only discussions from time to time.

I think their auto-spammer detection is... bad.
