"Oh", they said, "you can't implement this"
So we asked the community for help, but they were afraid to learn anything new.
"Oh", they said, "you should hire coders with donation money"
So we created a bounty program.
"Oh", they said, "you are already obsolete"
So we looked at what websites were actually using, and found we were doing just fine.
"Oh", they said, "you can't implement this"
So we went on and did it anyway.
