Discussion on: Here is why you should not be too quick at judging people by their GitHub activity stats

It's quite unfortunate that a simple thing with good initial intentions like the contribution graphs can be manipulated to tell a completely false story about a person!

Thanks for creating this — maybe to raise awareness of this (yes, contribution graphs need not matter so anymore!) or, ironically, share how to exploit this feature. If you're a developer starting out, I do hope that this article only served the former purpose, because it's not nice to fake your effort!

Yes, I absolutely agree. It is not fair on the hard-working maintainers and other people who actually do meaningful contributions.
