Last week a Node.js programming conference Nodevember announced they would be removing Douglas Crockford, a prominent programmer within the JavaScript community, as a keynote speaker. This was driven by a small yet vocal minority of SJWs using their favorite tactic - crybullying. Their accusations, which I looked into, seemed to be complete misrepresentations of his statements if not outright lies. If you’ve listened to previous episodes of this podcast, it’s LambdaConf Round 2 but this was a win for the safe-spacers.
