Re: yet again.

It was predicted back in 1980-s by the classic ESR's Questiond Smart Way essay.

It includes a chapter on Acting Like Looser where he observes that time and again hyper-courtesy was being long-term deadly to utility.

When the essay was prohibited to link to on SO about 5 years ago - they steppee on the road to that self-induced prophecy.
