@bix @esjewett @frostedechoes Oh, absolutely, I agree. Just because something becomes (or looks liable to become) a runaway train does not mean it didn't have a (worthy and necessary) destination to begin with.

However it simply feels reckless to dismiss the potential ramifications and clumsy-negative habits formed from allowing something such as this to go unchecked, granted immunity and impunity to moonlight as progressive, protected from any inquiry or criticism by virtue of its virtuous beginning.

Things build from the bottom up, and because there is, and was, good in the beginning does not mean there is no room for misuse and when misuse becomes the norm the damage is done and must be unpicked in reluctant bashful hindsight.
