Update: On the RSE website our developers are in the process of a opening a chat server hosted on a private network (off grid). It’s in the early stages, but is now open. This will be a good place for anyone who wants to discuss issues outside of Facebook, without censorship or big brother.
Also – If you look below the red circle in the picture, you will see a button that says “Join Server”. If you click this the chat opens in a new window.. and you can even talk on voice & video with other users. There is the option to download the Discord program for Windows / MAC and the Discord App for Cell phones.
I hope this feature provides a safe & private place for you to chat and meet new friends. Particularly as more censorship starts to take hold on mainstream platforms.
