Default Looking for a guild that doesn't use Discord

Heya! Seems like every guild I check are using the horrible and unsafe program Discord to communicate.
Is there any guilds out there who still uses the safer albeit less trendy communication programs such as ventrilo/mumble/Teamspeak?

Thank you!

back in 2014-2016ish guilds used mumble/teamspeak
everyone hopped on the discord train and ignored it's spyware.

Goodluck [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Edit: Mumble is the safest option if configured correctly due to it's built in encryption.

You can get people's IP address via discord, Yes I know discord likes to tout how everything has to go through their servers. They ignore and shame anyone who says it's not safe.

Plus discord watches the processes on your computer which could potentially be gathering other information.

discord is straight up spyware

If you don't want to install discord client. You could use it in a browser but you won't be able to talk yourself. Another option is a third party client such as https://cancel.fm/ripcord/ It's very limited in capability but at least it's not the default discord client.

Don't try to use a vpn with discord, discord will lock your lock account and demand you give them a phone number. Basically hold your account hostage until you give them what they want.

edit: I'll stop posting in your thread, sorry if I de-railed it. Good luck!

I want to join a guild that doesn't use botnet apps... Otherwise I can stay guildless.
Seriously fuck discord lol.

For the true classic experience, let's make a guild and use Roger Wilco as we did back in the day.

knowing someone's IP address is not useful information in nearly 100% of scenarios.
