t2bot.io's federation problems with matrix.org

Matrix is a decentralized and federated protocol, which means several servers all try to talk to each other to ensure that they all have an equal copy of a conversation. One of those servers is t2bot.io, and another is matrix.org. There are many more and you can even host your own.

If your user ID ends with :matrix.org (in Element this will appear near your display name), you will have problems setting up services offered by t2bot.io.
