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
I think the thing is that the main D newsgroup has always felt
like a bunch of people arguing over how to make D better, and
that's kind of what it's always been, new ideas and directions
are discussed in here by the main devs. Do Go and Rust have
similar user groups, or do they do all that kind of stuff behind
closed doors and then dictate from the top of a tower?
Arguing, friction, grumbling, it's all a symptom of Ds open
volunteer based development process IMO.
