Still not a crime. Don't tell people what to think, gringo colonizador.


You are trying to tell over 900 people in github what to think and do.
Who are you?

OK everyone, let's take a breath and calm down a bit. I'd like to be a bit more elevated than Reddit, and this is taking a very Reddit-like tone of name-calling and accusations which I think is beneath what the DEV community is capable of.

This is a very difficult topic, but there is no difficult topic that can ever be properly addressed in a productive way unless both sides can find a way to have a calm conversation about their differing viewpoints.

I won't engage with personal attacks anymore, but it's not productive to create a "both sides" view when there were a lot of different things to discuss in the original post.

Would be nice to mark posts like that as #politic or smth, so its easier to add ignore them

discuss tag is a pure parody in this case - first sign of someone with different opinion and we have a personal attack and imaginatory accusations - this is a definition of anti-discussion.

There is the word "politics" literally in the title. The issue of depolitization was highlighted in the text. You are free to stop reading something at any point. Why make this misleading accusation like I fooled someone?

The only way to not see the content in the feed is to follow the tag and set the priority to negative value. Thats why tagging posts correctly is important.

I think @neilonsoftware is right that we're not getting anywhere without a calm discussion.

Folks are going to disagree on this issue, but let's try not to let this escalate to the level of personal attacks. Though this is often tough when a topic is particularly heated, we must try hard to keep discussion on the issue itself and follow the Code of Conduct at all times. If we can't do this, it's best to just move on.

In this instance, it seems like we've reached a dead-end. So let's please not take this any further.
