QuoteThe original fear being ... we have to have a programming team, regardless of ability that meets PC requirements.
Quote from: Plu on January 27, 2019, 03:37:39 AMYeah, I understand what some people were afraid of. It's just that it seems based on nothing, given that the community is still going to judge the viability of all new commits regardless of who's sending them. The only thing that will change is that the responses should be free of BS that has no place in a software peer review anyway. Anyone in breach of this CoC in past comments was a dick back then, and is apparently bothered by the fact they can't be a dick to other people anymore. Being good at software is no excuse for being bad to your peers.It seems like nothing bad could possibly come of this CoC, unless you are the kind of person who can't support a project if you're not allowed to harass other people, in which case... that seems totally fine with me. It doesn't matter how good you are, if you're poisoning the team and the community, you need to go. Any software engineer who has ever worked on a team knows this.
Quote from: Halkenburg on January 27, 2019, 04:49:00 AMI was really bummed out when I heard about this. I thought that Linus would be the last person on Earth to cave in to the SJW crowd. FreeBSD made a similar move and was burned badly by it. Let's hope that the same thing won't happen to Linux. My heart couldn't bear that after IBM bought Red Hat last year.One thing to note is that the creator of this CoC has violated it themselves in the past and one of the first instances I've seen of it being applied was some SJW trying to get the maintainer of a software removed from his own project because of things he said about trans people on Twitter. I really don't like these recent developments.
Quote from: Halkenburg on January 27, 2019, 04:53:02 AMThe problem, from what I can see, is that people try to get programmers kicked off of projects for saying things that aren't politically correct outside of the context of the project, e.g. on their website, Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook page.
Quote from: Plu on January 27, 2019, 05:22:09 AMThen those people should really read the CoC, since the CoC doesn't say anything about contexts outside of the project. Only if you're officially representing the project, are you bound by it.Of course, easily offended people trying to shut up other people is nothing new, and also really dumb. Let people shout their racism and bigotry out into the world; makes it easier to see who is or is not worth dealing with.
Quote from: Halkenburg on January 27, 2019, 05:24:11 AMI sure hope that it will be enforced that way going forward.
Quote from: Baruch on January 27, 2019, 05:46:49 AMI find politics to be obnoxious. Less so than fisting. So when shall I turn you all into the thought police?
