Thanks for bringing some humour into the thread.

Referencing the writings of one conservative psychiatrist and therefore
presenting "leftism" as an illness being a fact gave me a good chuckle.

As the OP of the thread, I saw a Twitter thread involving several coders
discussing this issue and as MythTV is an open source project I thought it
might be a conversation starter for a Saturday morning. Ultimately it's up
to the Devs, since they're the ones who do the coding.
