When I say “Google is now strongly encouraging publishers to only publish AMP”, I mean AMP pages without a corresponding regular web page.
Cue semantic chicanery about AMP being regular web pages (spoiler: they are not).
I’m just saying: Web pages containing custom attributes is perfectly normal and doesn’t influence whether they are web pages or not. Whether you put an amp attribute on your HTML element or not certainly doesn’t change whether that document is a web page or not. Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith Tony Haile Trek, Drugs & Jem’hadar
I’m not arguing for any particular side except asking the legitimacy of the existence to be acknowledged. @adactio could just say “I disagree with xy and z” but instead he questions the right to exist. It leads to (certainly unintended) impression of fascism. Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith Tony Haile Jemal Cole - Amazon FC Ambassador Robot
Wow. You just called Jeremy a fascist for not liking the software you write. You should really think about that. Hey, if a site wants to stop using AMP, what’s the procedure for that? Malte Ubl
Ah, that does make him a fascist then. Good call. Malte Ubl
Yowza! Far from questioning AMP’s right to exist, I want it to exist and compete on a level playing field—without being propped up by an unfair advantage in search results. Classic fascism, that. adactio.com/notes/15673
A thing that shows how webby AMP is is seeing it inside Safari inside of Twitter. Google not involved, format benefits Twitter’s users. Compare to other formats that are mandatory-or-close to show up in other dominant platforms, but no 3rd parties can leverage/influence. Jeremy Keith Jeremy Keith Tony Haile Malte Ubl
