Re: This whole debacle mirrors Gamergate
Exactly! Is it any wonder that pages take so long to load when shitty little bits of code any beginner could knock up have to be dragged in as *live* dependencies from some 3rd party server? WTF are these people thinking? FFS, this left-pad thing was one of the exercises in BASIC programming in GCE "O" level Computer Studies (No kids, that wasn't a mistake, GCE predates GCSE, yes THAT long ago) back in about 1979 when I took the exam.
For that matter, WHY are there even code snippets like that even made available for live linking? No one could possibly own any IP on such a simple and obvious technique.
