Solutions for matrix spam bots

Might be possible to use with Lemmy as well (Maybe not if it uses the Mastodon client API)

Which Matrix clients are you using and why?
I managed to convince my friends to give Matrix a try. Among us we span almost all platforms. Any ideas on what clients to use would be much appreciated.

Syphon • A privacy centric matrix client
Been using this client for matrix and I gotta say. This might be the client to be adopted by many once it's out of alpha. What do you all think?

[Question] How much does Matrix homeserver cost on average?
Hello, How much does a small matrix server that I and my friends can use cost on average? I will also set up Whatsapp, Signal and Discord bridge on the server.

[Solved] How can I use syphon and element?
I'm trying to use element on manjaro linux and syphon on an android phone. I'm logged in with manjaro and when I log in from the phone I get a "verify your device" popup. When I click on verify it says "Verify other device To proceed, please accept the verification request on your other device." But I don't see anything on syphon. I can't read private chats because all messages appear as encrypted. I can read group chats though. So what can I do to read private chats from syphon?

Thunderbird will support matrix protocol out-of-the-box in version 102 (due June) and is available in v91 beta now. I just tried it, you go to *preferences*, *edit config*, add a string "*chat.prpls.prpl-matrix.disable*" and set it to false and matrix becomes an available option in the chats part of your account to find my old password.....
