it's dawned on me that the reason Signal seems pretentious in the way it treats SMS is because it both requires and relies on phone numbers to operate. it wants to take over my SMS app but doesn't want to work with SMS. @session does not require a phone number, so it makes more sense that they wouldn't support SMS, even though Session is based on Signal's technology. same idea for @matrix, though they are also superior for other reasons.

100% of Signal's users could use SMS messaging from desktop, yet they refuse to add it because they don't want to support insecure protocols. imo, they are destroying Signal's ability to spread because of this
