re: Won't be using them
 

Great. This was the purpose of this post. Can I ask you the reason?

 

Purpose of post: show that not everyone loves the new feature.
Reason for being against it: I think it makes Github less about the repositories. I like that GitHub left it up to the users to create a page to show off their skills, aka GitHub pages, but now you have a generic markdown document, that can't fully represent your skills.

Thanks for taking the time to explain it.

Not every feature is for everybody, that's for sure.

I somewhat agree with you, the more I see how people are using it, myself included, I see that It can be quite obtrusive and can remove focus from repositories and the profile in general if done incorrectly. I see it more as an "extended description" more than a personal site like GitHub pages.

Yup, and up to us (the readers) to voluntarily navigate to it, the new profile README is on your face from the moment you access someone's profile.
