This is is a valid concern. I believe there is a member of council active (or at reading) in every place that got listed. The one exception may be Discord, but I’ll rejoin it later today.

This isn’t perfect, but I think it is a start. 



I think we can link the major ones, but I have concerns about Discord too. I looked at it today and it seems not fitting Fedora, I can just find dubious channels/servers...

The Fedora Discord server[1] is perfectly safe, active and friendly community, and even much faster growing than the Telegram group. There is nothing dubious about it.

I hope that you're not looking at random totally unrelated Discord servers. Discord marketing is targeted at gamers and streamers, making a lot of the places ran by children full of "memes." If you're interested in other interesting communities you can join the Godot Game Engine[2] one, or TMRO[3] space/science, etc... But I recommend not joining anything random unless you're looking for it.
