Thank you Jacob!!

I was fed up with other places selling out and becoming toxic environments for sharing knowledge.

I think this speaks both to why some people find their way here, and also fundamentally why we had to put the work in to get here in the first place. While it is possible for any conversation on DEV to turn toxic, because with emotions and misunderstandings, we work really hard to make it the exception in the dialog here, rather than the norm.

All in all we just want to make the ecosystem healthier for everyone, and we've really worked to ensure we can focus on a business model that is in alignment with that, rather than working against it.

I certainly believe in the mission and I definitely believe in you and your team's passion for that mission.
