Re: It's Not GitHub's fault

"The fault is dynamically loading code from random folks accounts on GitHub rather than from a proper repository and then hosting either in a CDN you control, or within the application itself"

people who do that probably [ab]use ginormous libraries that they don't understand, doing a zillion things they do not need, and polluting the dependencies with unnecessary download requirements, both on the client end AND on the server end. My $.10 anyway.

I prefer copy/pasta the relevant parts and then maintain it as part of my OWN repo. Proper acknowledgements and licensing as needed.

(why do I need to load BLOATWARE when all I want is what 'left-thingy' does...)
