No. The question should be why are we having this silly discussion?

There’s no justification for this outburst of shed-painting.

Quite simply, we should trust Matt and his colleagues to make sensible decisions about the tools they provide for DNS-OARC. A lot of factors go into those decisions. Some of them are complicated. Others depend on detail that isn’t apparent to the membership - GDPR compliance or commercially sensistive info from suppliers for instance. IMO, we should leave Matt, Denesh, etc to get on with it. If they screw up or the chosen platform(s) turn out to be unsatisfactory, that’s a discussion for the board and/or AGM.

FWIW, I don’t care what chat platform is used. Provided it runs on a server that sits in a rack that’s painted yellow.
