I know this won’t last long here since the people that manage this group remove anything they don’t agree with. However, I wanted to thank them for being so rude when I asked them to remove the BLM BS from the main website for golang because I don’t think a programming language should be political.

Instead of having a discussion they told me to find another language and they hoped they never met me in person. So… I took their advice and looked at a language I’ve been wondering about for years, “Rust”. I don’t want to devote years into a language where those in charge are so narrow minded and rude anyway.

I have to say that so far my experience with Rust has been awesome. I’m blown away at how fast the end result is and the language has a lot of really cool features that you don’t get in go.

So, you were rude and socially unacceptable but you’re actions forced me to take up a new language that I’m actually enjoying much more than go.
