I usually find background music in restaurants and shops annoying, but please God crank up the background music in public bathrooms. If I wanted to hear that orchestra I'd get tickets to the Philharmonic.

(Assuming we’re talking about a technical discussion) There are people who have gone through and systematically faved everyone disagreeing with me, with whom I later became friends. I’m glad I didn’t block them.

Conversely, once you detect someone is faking it, you start carefully trying to tease out what's landing and what's not. Doing this in a respectful, face-saving way can really slow down the conversation.

There's a night-and-day difference in the quality of discussion with people who do this. It's liberating to drive to a point knowing they'll ask to clarify terms they don't understand.

Is a world where everyone has to hand-vet all the code in their app for security vulnerabilities a more secure world? Given what I know from shell scripting, I’m sticking with my package manager, thank ye kindly.

Maybe worth thinking about next time someone tut-tuts about “that awful security nightmare caused by your package manager bringing in transitive dependencies you haven’t vetted.”

Consider also how many shell scripting bugs, including security bugs, are replicated by endless copy and paste, with no recourse via standard package management remedies (file bugs, submit PRs, publish updates).

Today I had the obvious-in-retrospect realization that the reason shell scripting is a neverending nightmare of copy-pasta from SO is because it has no package management.

But yes, I totally agree npm has been awesome about their support for alt-clients! The first party CLI has come a long way too. I just want to give the fine folks working on Yarn the benefit of the doubt.

(I’d also argue that, in a package manager, things are rarely small asks in the long run—almost every decision has unintended consequences. For example, avoiding rewriting every package.json on install could yield significant performance benefits.)

Interesting. What in their response struck you as refusing to budge an inch? “Seems like a good thing to explore implementing” seemed like a positive signal to me:
