"evangelize", I'd say that's the problem. It's a religious belief 
/ community, is that what you're saying? Yes, I do have issues 
with that. A PL should convince based on its quality not on 
making people "feel good" about it, because reality will come 
back to bite you. How long has it been since ARM (Android/iOS) 
has been neglected? I first asked about it in 2015.

And again, I don't think low adoption rates are due to my posts 
(I'd say it's Ola - just joking!). That's just shifting the 
blame. That type of behavior is actually more detrimental to your 
"cause" than my two cents. Think about it. Look at how 
"dissenters" are treated and outright insulted (along the lines 
of worthless creatures, idiots etc.). What impression does a 
newcomer get from this?
