okay keybase aquired by company with heavy ties to china. I get it.

so what's wrong with them being a directory of public keys and proofs tying those keys to people's socials?

@ScottMortimer @r000t The problem is that if you create a account, there is no way to disable inbound msgs. So ppl can send you msgs & you can't stop it. If you don't install the very dodgy & insecure server, you can't access the messages & senders have no way of knowing their msg was blackholed.

@r000t @ScottMortimer It's a trap to force users to run their app, & ultimately force users to proliferate the lousy social networking part of the service.
