I enjoy being surrounded by people much smarter than I am when it comes to the mailing list here. Let's keep it that way and not derange ourselves into meaningless blabber from social media.

Meanwhile projects such as Opal <https://github.com/opal/opal/issues/941> and recently Rubocop <https://github.com/rubocop-hq/rubocop/issues/8091> as well were not. The latter one I'd like to draw attention to. The maintainer clearly didn't ask for this and asked everyone who shamed him, why are you doing this? None of the complainers were affiliated to the project at all. Chances are that they weren't even using it and just searched for projects with the name "cop" in it instead. These are not the people I want to support in my effort to end racism, which I /do/ support, and quite heavily so.

Hear Hear -

This isn't political.  It's just dumb.

P.S. I wish the people all spun up on terminological trivia would actually
expend their energy and activist voice to stop _real_ slavery which
goes on routinely in parts of Africa, Eastern Europe, and in China
every single day.  But trying to grasp what is happening, say, to the
Uyghurs is just way more work than your virtue card punched ...
