I think killing a man takes less time than explaining why it is wrong, are you going to do it if they tell you so, just cause it takes less time? It is, in fact, a matter of principle here, I will have no problem with having "main" as the default branch, but the reasoning behind it, for many people, is wrong. Now I'm very scared of people who just do things cause it takes less time than understanding what the problem is.

I am a student, and I choose master because that is the technical term for the technology.
