There are valid complaints to make about the mods, but this isn't it. We've been demanding for years, before even .org, for the staff to be more transparent and make their discussions public. This is exactly what we've been pursuing. With the /meta/, it's just the staff responding to the rare user question, and then discussing things and voting amongst themselves elsewhere out of view. With this, we can actually see their discussions. Even if you don't use it, it's still beneficial to have if only to observe. And it can't be a clique if other anons use it, that's one of the main points to make it public. I haven't ever used Matrix, but I just made a throwaway account to keep tabs on this yesterday. >>4193
Matrix is actually anonymous. I literally just put my name as anon, and I would advise others to do the same and not link their's to anything.
