Hey mate. Just found this little tweet for you. It's doing a better job to explain things than me in this thread.

It's explaining the same things in slightly different ways. I still don't think that my points are fully addressed within the first few dozen comments. In-fact, one of the prevailingly common comments in that thread is that it makes styling easier for non-CSS developers, which to me is an indication that those developers don't care about the quality of the CSS (how can they if they don't know CSS and aren't actually writing it?).

It might work fine for them, but it's a bit like using a hammer to force screws into wood. Over time the workmanship of the whole thing will suffer.

However, I see we will never agree about the merits of Tailwind, and that's the great thing about this kind of technology, the very fact that we can disagree on the tech ultimately means that we get better tech in the future.
