Ok, it was satire. I just changed a couple words in his latest anti-decentralization/anti-web3 post. Encryption was awkward and nerdy until it got easy (like Signal) now everybody manages their own keys and keyrings in these kinds of apps fine, because it's transparent. And they run their own servers when it's easy like a ring doorbell, wi-fi router, printer, or chromecast.

Also there's plenty of possible ways of interacting with a decentralized system in a decentralized way without running your own server. It's a bit trickier, but so is encryption in messengers. In fact, these are all the exact same complaints that people made against end to end encryption. The same ones Moxie had to defeat making his service.
