Nope, I don't enforce. I merely express my opinion. Just like you did right there.

It is entirely up to the original author whether to keep posting such cover images or not. And he seems reasonable about it and is considering my points. And I'm grateful for it. 👍

You can barely see the laptop. If she looked like she was coding something, I could maybe buy it. The Lady Justice staue in the background suggests that this is some generic picture of someone in a law office. Nothing about this says "developer". I wouldn't say I was "offended" by the photo, but it did seem unnecessarily click-bait-y. The author has acknowledged this (good for him), but I wanted to defend the issue. If it doesn't bother you, fine. But the point of polite discourse isn't to figure out what you can justify getting away with because a few people don't mind.

Hi, Thanks for your opinion and words ...First of all, I would like to clear to you that I didn't want to use any clickbait-y image as it's for the benefit of whole open source community.

Now how did I got that image?

  1. Go to unsplash.com (A royalty-free image sharing site)
  2. Search with the keyword (jobs) 3 Scroll down to the third line.

Sir, As you can see that I have used #jobs in my post so I thought why not post with an image.

Thanks!

Thanks for the clarification. I'm sorry if my wording came across as very harsh. I think we have made things clear now and I'd like to thank you for your understanding and consideration.

Yeah, I can definitely see how it could happen. It's not like she was in a bikini or something. But the emphasis seem on the beautiful woman rather than coding. But I could see how it would an innocent mistake.
