Everybody can have different opinions about technology.
But you are fighting the wrong war in my opinion. And you are also fighting it with the wrong messages.
First, Babel is just a transpiler, maintained by some people that may or may not being paid for it, depending on the time investment they put on it, nothing shocking about that. Babel funding is just about 120K$/year. Showing theses numbers on the video and saying that these people that quit their job to work full time on babel don't deserve it, is rude at best.
Second, you filled a bug, with a really bad attitude. The maintainer was right to show you the code of conduct of the project. I find it immature to write a bug report the way you did and hoping it will be well received on the other side.
Now for the technical part, Babel is a useful tool, for :
And the list can go on. There are good reasons to use Babel as there might also be good reasons to not want to use it. Like there are also good reasons companies want to use Typescript.
Now on the part about bugs not being fixed. Every software have bugs, it's not because you think a bug should be prioritised higher that it should. There might be a ton of other bugs more critical from the team point of view. And if you think a bug is so critical for your use case, why not try to propose a patch? you know, it's open source.
Hurray, a scandal! 🙌
Idk who's going to ban you, but... I see that you've suffered with that 🙂
Documentation and it's disruption is an important question. Have you found a workaround for that with babel? Without it?
What are the benefits of using babel at all?
I applaud your free speech! I hope to hear more of it! I'm always open to hearing someone's perspective because it's how I learn.
