Eike Hein, with due respect for your involvement in KDE, I think it is better to focus on understanding the concern and discuss that objectively than constantly calling others bad or inpappropriate behavior for different opinions to yours. Neither side has done that here except you. And it is neither objective, nor constructive. It does happen that people disagree. It is the nature of the world. I do not feel any need for proving any remorse for having my own opinion on planet kde. And definitely not unfortunate for that at all, whatsoever! Quite the contrary, I feel proud that I have my opinion and dare to raise it in a respectful way. I am happy to agree to disagree and leave at that. But having read your posts, I would advise you that you read upon psychological safety. Not to worry, I will not read Planet KDE any time soon again to avoid politics as that is the only way at the moment. And as a seemingly mutually working and beneficial solution, I have also unsubscribed from the mailing list. Thanks.
I do not understand why. KDE has mostly had the spirit of not limiting its community to a single decision when it comes to preferences. As I understand, the outcome of the matrix, irc, etc, debate was also this. People should be empowered to work the way they find it efficient. KDE has not forced a single solution on all which is what you seem to be proposing. I find it inconsiderate that we respect your preferences, but we do not get the same respect for our preferences.
It is really not that complex and so much simpler than you think. Check practically any content filtering (pretty much nearly all platforms) where content is tagged by keywords and then you can follow certain keywords. It is the basis of the internet these days for SEO and many other purposes, really.
Yes, that is fine. You do not have to set up filters if you like all. But there are people who would like to have special focus on certain topics, e.g. purely technical.
+1 - I think it is useful to have content filtering like for emails.
I think it needs to be more subtle. At least two layers for personal, also. Controversy free and controversy included. As anything, these categories would also need definition. But for example, political topics would fall under controversy for me, especially things like Trump, Brexit, etc. I am happy to read a fellow KDE developer cycling through Europe. But I want to avoid a fellow KDE developer's post about e.g. Brexit.
