Words are powerful, they kindle emotions. Saying for everyone here.

Async communication gives an opportunity for everyone to throw in sharp words. We wouldn't be saying such words when we meet them in person.

I regret being the person to start this. Now this thread is going in a different direction.

Let the bitterness end here please!!

They are actually going against their rules and are actively trying to game their algorithm by telling D's community to search for the article instead of providing.

So actually, I'd they also wanted to follow tand respect the rules of another community, then they would be providing a direct link. What they are doing now is going against their rules by trying to bypass their algorithm for more fake internet points.

I don't know why you're so worked up about this, but please scroll up and read what I wrote. Nowhere have I asked for anyone to upvote the post. I want people to know it's there so that those who would like to do so can head over and comment. Whether you upvote or not is up to you, but if you do so I would like it to count. I also don't want direct links harming our ranking. That gets more eyes on the post and helps us all in the long run.

If that's not good enough for you, then I have nothing else to say on the matter.

Replies like this one and andrei are why.

You are directing a community around a topic to an article about that topic. What do you think they are going to do? There's a reason why votes don't count when an article is linked directly. They didn't do it by mistake.

No worries, I'll post the direct link for you in the future. I got you covered.

I have a feature request to the forum engine, automatically delete all posts with hn deeplinks, problem solved.

Can't we just set Referrer-Policy: no-referrer in the web interface? Mailing list and newsgroup shouldn't be affected anyway.

Pretty sure it's the stuff in std.v2020.algorithm (https://forum.dlang.org/post/rcqk4f$1dou$1@digitalmars.com). That discussion was part of the reason I got the post published right now. (the other reasons being I'd had it lying about for a long while, and a DConf 2020 presentation just wasn't going to happen)

Our Silicon Valley meetups are still going on:

  https://www.meetup.com/D-Lang-Silicon-Valley/events/kmqcvqybcjbxb/

However, without dedicated effort to line up speakers, it dwindled to a social gathering of very few people.
