BTW. This complicated thing about metadata is the main reason why I have misgivings about the "stories" in signal: they would create conversations between each of their users and ~all their contacts, which would show more of the social graph to anyone with ability to monitor what signal the service is doing.

were we supposed to take the turkey out of the freezer before now?
