Folks, I fully understand that this may be a very heated topic and that both sides seem to hold strong opinions on the matter.
As it stands, this conversation is going around in circles. Everyone has expressed their opinion, and everyone's stance is clear.
The only path forward that provides utility is backing up statements with proof, so that the community can collectively come to an understanding and exchange facts, not opinions.
Accusing each other of being ignorant or spreading FUD is not positively contributing to the discussion, and we'll be forced to lock this thread if that continues.
We're here to help each other, not argue.
I would like to remind everybody that the community has a code of conduct:
Please be nice to one another, and keep discussions focused on a technical level, without attacking each other.
Thank you all for your understanding.
