This is a friendly and encouraging community. We are here to learn and improve. There are folks here who are experts in the field with decades of experience in industry and academia. And there are folks who are just getting started. They are all welcome. We're interested in learning how things work under the hood and we're not satisfied with groupthink or even Chesterton's fence. These may not be the right goals to have at work, but this isn't a workplace it's a community. Bullshitting and putting other people down are not welcome here. Whether on Discord or in a book club or on social media, I try to follow these guidelines and expect others who choose to be involved with stuff I organize to follow these guidelines too.
