The BDFL of Python, Guido van Rossum, stepped down for similar 
reasons, saying something controversial and getting massively 
bullied about it.

How does this relate to D? D has the most emotionally positive 
and vibrant language communities I've been in. People express 
gratitude and use humble and positive language.

 Nice idea, thanks for sharing.

 Defining a systematic library for that stuff would be pretty 
 awesome and would cut down a lot of duplication from Phobos.
Note how positive the language is. It makes me want to share other ideas about testing I have for D Language. Let's keep D positive.

Very important point. I think we have a pretty good balance. If your ideas are good you'll know about it, and if they're no good, you'll know about it, but in a respectful way! ☀
