No one is forcing anyone. Someone merely asked "why reinvent the
wheel?". Then it degenerated from that point with a barrage of baseless
attacks against Spirit with lots of false assertions that were later proven
to be wrong by those who are more knowledgeable of the framework.
It is simply improper to spread FUD disguised as valid rationale.
What I find amusing though, was that the burden of proof was shifted.
To whom was the question being asked in the first place?
