techbro red flags
1: Framing polite, reasonable requests as harassment. (see: the GIMP name debacle)

3: Framing asking for different phrasing as censorship.
4: Framing boundaries as censorship.
5: Refusing to listen to vulnerable people when they say a planned feature will open avenues to cause harm.

Let’s stop the rich from passing on their wealth!
