Kind-of OT: while I understand (and have sometimes felt myself) the
desire to vent frustration about a decision one doesn't agree with,
thers should be *at least* a link to the discussion alluded to so that
readers make their own mind.

Otherwise, it feels to me like any disagreement here may end up
chastised on Twitter by some influential figure of authority.  That's
not a pleasant place to be in.
