Re: [Numpydiscussion] Silent Broadcasting considered harmful
The problem would be human resources to implement it on the doc site; I don't know how PHP people control modern spammers. The current, Pythonic way would be to edit the tutorial when inspired. However http://wiki.scipy.org/Tentative_NumPy_Tutorial reads: "Please do not hesitate to click the edit button. You will need to create a <http://wiki.scipy.org/UserPreferences>User Account first. " which leads to http://wiki.scipy.org/UserPreferences "UserPreferences You are not allowed to view this page." ;)  Ray Schumacher At 11:37 PM 2/8/2015, you wrote:
That sounds like a good idea! I didn't see any real good examples of usage after some googling. Giving more examples of effective usage could also clear more things up regarding design decisions. Additionally I'm always interested in learning some new tricks :)

Via my (admittedly infrequent use of) numpy.linalg <http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/routines.linalg.html#linearalgebraonseveralmatricesatonce>http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/routines.linalg.html#linearalgebraonseveralmatricesatonce I think it behaves more in line with algebraic thinkers. I do not have any issue with broadcasting, and use it frequently, but I've always wanted to see more examples and discussion directly in the docs, in general. I have over years post/argued for a doc site more like PHPdoc, where users can contribute examples and discuss them. There is a wealth of such examples here in the list and the tutorial, but requires unnecessary time and Googlefoo.
