      2 <p>Yeah, very imaginative title… But well, here is why gitter just sucks compared to all chat things I saw:</p>
      3 <ul>
      4 	<li>You have to sign in, but you can see the lobby or whatever without being logged on via the JS thing
      5 	<li>The IRC bridge requires you to sign in or it throws you out of the server…
      6 	<li>You can <em>only</em> sign in with Github or Twitter
      7 	<li>Triple-Facepalm for the <a href="https://gitter.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200876472-Privacy-policy">Privacy Policy</a> and probably the rest of the <a href="https://gitter.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/sections/200274872-Legal-documentation">Legal Documents</a> (hosted on Zendesk™ because hosting text is hard…)
      8 </ul>
      9 <p>I’m really glad I’m more of a sysadmin/netadmin than a developer… at least it doesn’t tries to please my kind. Seriously with all this DevOp shit don’t make it more hard for cypherpunks/privacy-nerds.</p>
