Even in the best case scenario where it's an actually secure platform, it's still a net negative for anyone who uses it.
Group-based instant messaging is a huge time waster, to the point that I've deleted my accounts multiple times in the past for that very reason. If you enjoy having conversations (which I do very much) and have an inflated ego (which I do very
much), you could be opening that window every 5 minutes.
Furthermore, the actual quality of discussion drops massively, because instead of answering a fully constructed argument once every few hours, people start going for witty replies and one-liners. The very layout of most of these platforms is designed to best fit single-sentence messages, having well-constructed posts becomes seen as non-casual and cringe.
Putting aside how you're now spending inordinate amounts of time on getting meme clout and having worthless arguments, there's an inherent security risk in the way the technology itself works. On imageboards, especially with tor, your post could be made by anyone
. Beside your typing style and habits, little else can be used to profile you, such as a daily routine, timezone, etc. On a group chat platform, you'll literally have a real-time "online" indicator, meaning anyone can write a script for the API to log your daily activity and piece together a routine. All your messages have a name attached, meaning whatever little details you let slip can be associated to you with 100% confidence, as opposed to imageboards where you have to guess whether that specific post was made by that specific anon.
Couple that with the retard meme discussions and the heated instant-reply environment, and you're likely to reveal more or less everything important about yourself over the course of a month or two, in those little, insignificant tidbits.
There's a reason why imageboards are still used after years of successive "disruptive" chat platforms. This continues to be the superior format for the development of quality ideas and a healthy life, and will likely remain the social platform meta far into the future.
Name one. Are you talking about the covid and debt reset stuff? Maybe ethnoglobe as a theoretical end-point of fascism? How "extreme" or "fantastic" are the posts you're kvetching about?

So your point is that we should be censoring discussion and topics, in order to stay on a particular platform with particular leanings and views, whatever
those topics and discussion may be.
I don't see where your attachment to anon.cafe comes from, but the moment they decided to ban an entire community for being "extremist," they lost all value to us. You are right, though, in that /fascist/ should have never relied on them in the first place. The ideal would be to host an independent site, preferably darknet-only,
