Sorry if I'm hurting someone's sentiment, but is it just me who
is seeing so much negative trend in the D forum about D itself? I
don't remember seeing so much negative about Rust on rust forum
and so on. Do you think it will help in reminding people not to
post any negative things? It shouldn't become strict moderation,
but at the same time, I really don't like seeing so much negative
trend. I would even go to the extent and suggest to email
Walter/Andrei in person (even if they don't agree) to vent your
frustration with D, but please don't post it on the forum.
Everyone knows the current state of D and this can be improved
with more volunteers. Even a small topic like some xyz library is
not up to the mark is being dragged towards argument and
negativity about D instead of realizing that the issue needs to
be reported to the respective library author.
The community is small when compared to other languages, so it is
essential to keep the positive vibe to attract larger mass (to
reach the critical mass at first hand).
We need great minds from across various industries and
experiences to strengthen ourselves. So please promote D with
what it can offer at the moment instead of spreading negative
sentiment of how it can do certain things with some missing crazy
syntax sugar, etc. We know such things are being/can be worked
D is a wonderful programming language and let's share awesome
things we do with it.
