njs's blog post

I appear to be the target of a personal character attack piece, that's been making it's rounds on social media today, expertly timed to ruin my weekend at PyCon US 2019.

I got nothing but strange signals from njs since I first interacted with him, which is why I didn't answer his threatening-sounding emails. What was the threat I was perceving? That he'd do basically do exactly this.

And, he did. Good for him.

All that being said, I'm not sure why this person feels the need to attack my character, including curating a list of quotes (what?) from "collaborators". All I have to say about this section is hey, if you don't like me, don't fucking work with me. I don't have time for two-faced relationships.

My set of real collaborators is generally scoped to a very small set of close friends, so I'm not really sure who he's referring to anyway.

Anyway, just wanted to get some kind of response out there.

Keep on, keeping on.


Update I: I will be removing the donation buttom from my repos, based on community feedback. They're mostly an experiment anyway, and a failed one (very rarely do they get used).

Update II: Requests III is planned to be shipped by next PyCon, and I don't forsee the need to fundraise more between now and then. I see no tehcnical blockers (there have been for the past year), and it looks like all will be well. Just have to be patient. It's better to take the time to get things right :)

Update III: I never accepted paid support contacts for Requests.

Update IV: Expect a Requests III Development Update post on my blog, soon!
