law of triviality / bikeshed





Don’t hesitate to point out when you notice one.


This discussion fits under this topic. Many of the comments did not add any real value to the issue at hand. Even after the changes were pushed to the testers repo, the discussion still continued. Why? Quite often community members try to contribute even when they don’t have a good understanding of the topic. This is evident when users can’t let go of their idea even when they are shown its incorrect or irrelevant. Why? Perhaps their ego?

Just to be clear, all posts that I made past the “pushed to repo” post did not add any value either.
