So turns out #Freenode has gone full 4chan. The staffers are speaking like they are on /pol/ or /b/.
#Freenode killed the Elixir IRC channel #elixir-lang, "The topic is in violation of freenode policy", apparently for mentioning the @liberachat channel in the topic as an alternative. Even though it is an official project channel.
There is pandemonium on #freenode-services as many other channels have been hit by the same enforcement. Freenode has said it was "erroneous", but I wonder how you erroneously suspend every channel mentioning Libera in its topic.
Falsehoods programmers believe about addresses: Google is the source of truth. Bumped into this again today with Foodora, as our address has changed from let's say 15 to 15a.
I can type in "Street 15a" to the address selector, but it forces me to select it from a Google Maps dropdown, and then removes the "a" as I guess it's not yet in Google's data. So even though there are two houses here, 15a and 15b, I cannot specify 15a. Instead I must write it in the additional info box.

#Rust users are the vegans of the programming world. Blamelessly mocked and vilified because deep down everyone knows they are morally superior.
