You sure heard about the "CrossKylixGate"... A Great tool I used for
years (CrossKylix) has just
been updated. Its author (named Simon) posted an announcement in the
Embarcadero forums. Then the post has been deleted by "Team B" members, because
of some old story.
But not only Simon has been censured. Since I like and use this free tool, I
posted a very "soft" post just with the announcement of the CrossKylix update,
with some explanations and precisions. No debate. Just a link to the download
page. Then my whole thread was deleted.
It just sounds like a "damnatio memoriae" to me.
From wikipedia: "Damnatio memoriae
is the Latin phrase literally
meaning "damnation of memory" in the sense of removal from remembrance. It was
a form of dishonor that could be passed by the Roman Senate upon traitors or
others who brought discredit to the Roman State."
Are we back to the tyrany of the Caesars in old Rome?
Will Simon feed the lions?
I hope not, at least because of CrossKylix, I'll thumbs up and pray for
The worse in this case is that it's not the Senate (i.e. Embarcadero) who made
the decision, but some "Team B" zealous and proud anonymous.
Thumbs down for him!
