Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

It’s a line in the sand that has existed for decades. Removing it unecessarily would be a huge step back.

What makes your proposal great is that it highlights instead of hiding. That’s not a minor part. It’s the breakthrough.

Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

I strongly disagree. Hiding any part of the URL with the assumption that “it’s for their own good” is an amputation. It disempowers the user. And, as your proposal shows, it’s not necessary.

Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

100% agree!

The key thing is highlighting the important part, rather than hiding anything (which is why I much prefer your proposal over Apple’s implementation).

“Also, try select and `input[type=”date”]”

I think you missed the bit where I said “a way to style all the bits of a form control”. Try styling the open state of a select element using an element selector.

Jake, like I said, I really like your proposal. But the way you’re framing it here on Twitter (as opposed to in your video) is reductive and polarising.

(Here we are arguing when we agree about the bit that matters—the proposal.)

Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

Right. Those are some URLs. Some URLs aren’t easy to understand (sometimes by design, deceptively). We’re in agreement.

But I would never say “humans can’t read URLs” because they can’t read some URLs.

Replying to a tweet from @adactio

Painting all disagreement as people being “enraged” isn’t helpful.

And there’s a big difference between “some humans can’t read some URLs” and “humans can’t read URLs”.

Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

Keep the “They started it!” response for the schoolyard.

Listen, your video was clear, well-argued and level-headed. But your tweet was the opposite of that.

Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

Jake, I really like your proposal (as you know), but saying things like “I don’t know why this enrages folks so much. The truth is, humans can’t read URLs” doesn’t encourage good faith discussion.

Genuinely saddened by @Tobi’s hypocrisy.

@Shopify supports Breitbart.

That’s some cognitive dissonance when you’re enabling white supremacists while sending company-wide memos about injustice.
