OK I framed it wrong - obviously did not mean single server literally. They all rely on an easy to discover and block IP range(s) where the servers are hosted. As a workaround, Signal employs domain fronting, but they can not continue doing that.

Perhaps we need a secure chat which employs distributed peer-to-peer user directory, but then it might become vulnerable to state manipulation (and interception) simply by brute force.
