There's a bit of history here, I think. A good example is Google's Closure Compiler (which I've worked on, a little bit): it existed aeons before the Node ecosystem, and Babel and Rollup etc, and I think we tend to try to build things that don't exist elsewhere.
I think the (assumed) negative connotation is that we still use Closure, and so we must not be keeping up with the times. I'll let readers decide if that's correct or not 🤷
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
