And that's precisely what I was addressing: his reflections and the way he thinks about this.
If I think my voice can be vetted by other people's notion of morality, I will find it acceptable if I see it happening to me or anyone.
And I find that position very dangerous.
One thing is asking "is it respectful or appropriate", "is it a grateful way of writing to other developers", or "is it effective from a publisher's perspective". A totally different thing is asking: "is it morally acceptable", "has this been prohibited"...
I really don't think making decisions for yourself based on the moral code you follow is a dangerous thing. At no point did the OP call for silencing of others' speech. At no point did the OP call for policing others' speech.
I guess we have different positions and that's totally acceptable.
To clarify, I did not claim he called for silencing other people. What I said was:
"I think it's dangerous to even consider the possibility of silencing someone's voice because one might not like his/her "style".
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
