At least some of this discussion has
been interesting, but I still think the
system is less broken than some
people make out.
I agree. Also, it is easier to fix from within than by taking
pot-shots from the sidelines. Mind, I'm rather disquieted by what has
happened to Tony Sidaway of late, and I'm not sure how I feel about
the way the project can apparently no longer accommodate SPUI,
although I suspect that may be just a fit of pique at losing a
long-running and very heated argument.
I suppose it shows peer pressure works.
Unfortunately, it's also another step towards
blandness. If this project becomes boring,
interesting people won't contribute.
There is a general distrust of dynamism,
and this is a cultural flaw here which I am
happy to do my bit to neutralise.
