One can think it's dumb. I think that's a lazy knee jerk reaction just to protect ones own feeling that "something is wrong".
One can think developers *ought* not to put their ethics into software. I think that's called paid proprietary software. But I believe FLOSS is all about ethics, and doesn't get to drawn an arbitrary line.

So seriously -- before someone complains about #Tusky again because it "just feels wrong" -- that moment of emotion, that gut feeling of getting flustered and passionate because it just feels "wrong" is and always has been my sign to myself that I need to step back and really check myself. My best personal growth both logically and emotionally has usually ensued by channeling that passion into learning and listening instead of writing and talking.
I hope others do the same.
