1 / Good morning, internet. Glad you liked what I wrote, but, a couple things to also remember:
2 / This doesn't mean people at Github are bad people. We don't know how they feel as individuals. It's probably a bad week for them.
3 / So if you have friends at Github - talk to them and try to be supportive if you can. From personal experience...
