I appreciate there are legitimate critiques but “I wonder if this is by design to solve problems for an audience that is not me” is not a common train of thought amongst nerds. How do you engage in good faith with people who assume that a discordance in perspectives usually means the other person is wrong rather than the other person having an experience or some context that is missing.
@grimmware You solve that one, thereʼs liable to be a Nobel Peace Prize and honorary prophet status in several major religions for you.
@monkeyborg don’t forget the tsunami of blog posts saying how much of an ignorant shithead I am too!
@monkeyborg “sure being crucified, burned or disemboweled is bad, but have you ever been *criticised on the internet*”
@grimmware I have probably said something critical of Gemini at one time or another, but I think youʼre doing great work. Keep it up!
@monkeyborg oh I’m not saying it’s beyond reproach! There are certainly things I would have done differently but I think largely the attitude of “why was this not built on HTTP?” whilst totally lacking credulity or persuance of the stated explanations when they don’t seem to explain the whole story isn’t meeting in discourse with good faith.
@grimmware Well, Gemini isn't for everyone. Guess it’s not for *those* people in particular. Fuck 'em
