I would say that no online forum is a “safe space.”
From Tessa Lena:
I did not fact-check this but I have subjectively suspected for a while that Proton was either semi-BS or a honeypot. I read a few years ago that it was using Google for a part of their function, don’t remember the details.
Either that, or Proton is the real deal and somebody wants people off it. :)
