I mean, honestly, is anyone *really* surprised by these turn of events? 🤦♂️
Anyone with half a brain in the field called this a long time ago.
He who begins by loving Christianity better than truth, will proceed by loving his own sect or church better than Christianity, and end in loving himself (his own peace) better than all -- Coleridge
In other words. Whosoever begins by loving anything better than truth, always ends up as an egotist.

@ceejbot G+ users are being scattered to the wind 😞
I posted asking if anyone is starting something similar elsewhere. We'll see what happens.
@ceejbot There's a Google+ community discussing postmortems: https://plus.google.com/communities/115136140203018391796
Of course, Google is killing G+, so...
I would avidly read post-mortem blog posts for incidents like this one: https://kotaku.com/anthem-s-first-demo-weekend-was-a-mess-1832126144

Suggestion for kind people.
Some people need to polarize groups around them, more or like adolescents do to build a personal identity by contrast with parents, but for a personal and sometime economical gain.
This is happening on the #fediverse too. Some "twitter refugees" learned the #AI craft of #market #segmentation and are trying to reproduce this shit here too, but to their own benefit.
Don't let them win.
Be kind, even if they insult you because of your race or gender.
And ask questions.
