+1. We cannot possibly support every user's preferred platform. Besides,
didn't Discord just do an IPO? This increases the likelihood the
platform will now have a much higher revenue focus and could mean it may
transition over time to either a paid model or add advertising or some
other revenue raising model.

(I notice with interest that Google has started transitioning some of
its services which were previously free to a paid model and I wonder if
the free service gravy train might be coming to an end?)
