[liberationtech] Cryptocat: Translation Volunteers Needed

To be honest, if you are not in a situation that needs cryptocat anyway, and Nadim doesn't make any money from you using cryptocat... and it means less hostile bug reports from you... why would he want you to?

No one is forced to use the program, yes, Opera might be used by people we would like to target but as said earlier Opera is coming out real soon with a new version that will be compatible. Why waste effort to support a legacy browser, when he could be focusing his time on making cryptocat better for everyone?

I don't speak for CryptoCat so don't use my words against them, I just don't really see why people are getting all agro. We are all on the same team.
