I would prefer to take a deliberate action instead.

The leaders of the split admit that their actions
were planned in advance. It says so at their website:

"In early 2021, that changed. ... This was the writing on the wall.
As a precautionary measure, we began laying the groundwork for what
would become Libera.Chat."

So they were plotting this for a long time and we're supposed
to jump swiftly? That doesn't seem very fair.
