Art is Not About You
Forked from a community statement about Clojure
The only people entitled to say how art 'ought' to work are people who make art, and the scope of their entitlement extends only to their own art.
Just because someone creates something does not imply they owe the world a change in their status, focus and effort, e.g. from artist to community manager.
As an appreciator of a piece of art you are not thereby entitled to anything at all. You are not entitled to a say in how it evolves. You are not entitled to timely updates. You are not entitled to the attention of the artist. You are not entitled to having value attached to your complaints. You are not entitled to this explanation.
