re: Is this based on something or just opinion? Django was pretty cool twelve years ago and I'm sure it still fills a niche for those few users actuall...

A lot of people don't realize that Pinterest is primarily built upon django and django rest framework.

Have they optimized the hell out of their stack?
Oh of course they have. They have blogged a decent amount on their escapades on scaling python and Django. Their requests at one point were so optimized, they disabled the garbage collection built into python because it was better to just let the process end since the request was done.

Django has done a lot in the last few years to keep up to date and has actually done really well.

Yes, I have used Django, no I don't use it anymore for various reasons. But it is still very relevant in the python ecosystem. Easily still the most popular framework next to flask.
