    Every topic has been talked about and talked about again, but then multiply that by 1000.

    The end was the emergence of "Dark Patterns". I haven't fucking worked with a designer in my life who intentionally designed with malintent. EVER.

    We're overthinking everything and doing less because of it.

      This sentiment seems the same even on design twitter, is it possible that designers are running out of interesting things to discuss around pure design related topics?

        I don't understand the many downvotes on these two comments. I think that's actually what's going on with the online design community in general.

        Just look at Dribbble, it's not as active / fun as it used to be. A lot of people moved on. I think that's just the way it is with many online communities.

      Not the main point, but you misunderstand dark patterns.
