You need thick skin to be a fediverse developer.
@dansup I would say: "you need thick skin to be an opensource developer".
@foxhkron Yeah, am surprised he hasn't disabled Issues on GitHub.
I know a few projects like Laravel has disabled them and they are doing fine.
I don't think it's possible to convince Gargron in some of his controversial decisions. But anyone who insult him should know that insulting isn't a way to solve problems. From the opensource point of view, if you don't agree, you can make a fork.
"Nobody forces then to use Mastodon"
Unless they're on Masto Host
And where are the migration tools?
I'm not asserting that comments never get abusive, but I will say that having a thick skin and not supporting migration to your project are both reasonable strategies for maintaining colonial standards of discourse
@DashEquals I wanted to say that there is nothing surprising. If you have users, you have a responsibility, even if you don't want it and you just writing opensource projects for fun. Until you trying to ignore that fact, you may get bullied. And that's why I corrected @dansup post. It's not only about fediverse, it's about opensource.
Gargron made a decision. He publicly ignores anyone who have different opinions than his own and it's his right.
@dansup I think you've been doing a fantastic job. I feel like people don't praise enough, so you might only hear the negative opinions.
@dansup 🙌🙌🙌🙌 you're doing great!!
@dansup which is sad :(
