Cyber-Criminals GTFO! — Discussion of security, privacy & laws pertaining to cyberspace. Conspiring to commit unlawful acts is strictly prohibited. No advertising of, or inquiring about, illegal services allowed. You will be censored.
Interested in why this isn't an "encrypted" room? MilkMansjourDaddy did a write-up! https://github.com/MilkManzJourDaddy/matrix-org/wiki/E2EE-and-Public-Rooms
Laws related to cybersecurity and privacy are absolutely up for discussion. Invasion of privacy and cyberattacks are absolutely up for discussion. Things that have nothing at all to do with cybersecurity are, in general, not, and politics that have nothing to do with cybersecurity are especially not.
No need to introduce yourself, nor greet others; whereas "lurking"/idling is fine. "Don't ask to ask! Just ask." - This is NOT a General Chat. Go fill the scrollback with hi-hello ping-pong somewhere else like #off-topic:matrix.org . Put your greetings within a topical message!
It is polite to ASK in the room BEFORE inviting someone into a Direct Chat. This is EXPECTED before DC'ing Mod's, and futile AFTER being banned. Can't behave in the room, don't waste our time in a D.C. Full stop.
