@calevans In trivial cases, like assessing a TV show, I agree. But that sense of badness, and its expression, is usually the step towards persuading others that it is so, taking action against it, etc.
Which is why I have believed for some time that most such judgments, presented after the fact as the consequence of rational process, are in fact essentially esthetic.
The visceral response is the first, and usually the most lasting.
@ramsey That makes us Visigoths. Cool.
@ramsey Are you in charge of this instance's federation?
@ramsey OH NO
@ramsey Good morning.
Welcome to the PHP Community on Mastodon! We're a friendly little Mastodon instance providing a place for PHP developers to discuss topics related to PHP, as well as topics unrelated to PHP. First and foremost, we're about building community, and that doesn't always involve technical discussion, so feel free to go off-topic and have fun.
Before you get started, make sure you check out our code of conduct.
Thank you to Jakob Westhoff for allowing the use of the photograph "elePHPants walking through the light."
