It may seem obvious to you what’s at stake here, but if it isn’t then take a clear headed moment to really think about the following: An attitude of cohesion (even if it doesn’t come naturally to you) has irrefutable long term benefit for an online community. If you feel threatened, consider silence and walking away the most constructive course of action. If you want to engage then hold to these two key points - emotions need to be oriented toward unity and the thinking/ideas need to be oriented to working out the problems for the benefit of all. Another way of saying this is: disagreement is transient yet cohesion is constructive; and black and white thinking leaves no room for consideration of many wonderful other colours. Separative attitude on either level leads to reluctance of participation, opportunities lost. Ask not for justice, ask how you can give back with warm feel and excellent integral insight.
I agree with the sentiment here that the Renoise community seems to be quite a few notches above the current flood-water levels of separative interaction. There’s countless examples of outright nobility and razor sharp discourse coming together as elements to assist in the evolution of both the software and unique sense of belonging we have here in this post-tracking niche. I don’t see it under threat in any serious way. But the edges sometimes can get frayed and snares can create occasional vortexes of sludge that discourages all of us to give us much as we gave last time. At these times it’s good to remember the power of focus: Whatever is focused upon is cultivated. So if we focus upon the worst, the lowest, then we give strength to it. If we focus on what the collective aspires to (e.g. A Better Renoise For All) then that is what we sow.
