point out that the goal of bridging to discord is not to permit access
via a phone, nor is it an effort to get people to switch from IRC to any
other system. It is to lower the barrier to entry, and hopefully
encourage new participants in the CF community. Additionally, if your
feelings on the matter are that strong, then I wish you had contributed
