@sir couldn't agree more. I even wrote about it a few years ago when I started noticing this trend:

At the time (on the post) I gave the benefit of the doubt to Discord, but nowadays I think that, in the presence of better and open alternatives, it is a bad choice for this use case, just like Slack.

@dethos @sir the main difference, is I don't think a proprietary option can be viable: its terms can be changed (and made evil) unilaterally at any point by its proprietors, and as such, it is unwise/unsafe for any community to use/develop a dependency on.
