RE: field project manager on model project.projectby
(I am ranting, as I did before, so please ignore/disagree/react/respond as you see fit).
You and others are free to use the words you choose. I was simply pointing out that some people don’t respond very well to being told they are misguided.
In English there is a phrase ‘you collect more flies with honey, than with vinegar‘. (Translation: It is easier to persuade others with polite requests and a positive attitude rather than with rude demands and negativity).
Misguided -> may come off as rude/negative
Different Perspective -> may come off as polite/positive
I’d like the Community to be ‘respectful and nice’. Often we are not and I don’t like it.
Thanks for having room for my perspective on this!
P.S. If I told you YOUR reply was misguided, how would it make you feel? J

It would be great, and raise the level of the discussions, to not assert that anyone is misguided when we disagree with their perspective.
On this case it is misguided.
I never understood this change either.
Other point (which I can be agree) is that we can have a group again just to show functional views.
If the answer is: Thas tfield is hidden because this standard or this functional reason because you shoud use it on this and this and that way.... << that's ok, maybe I am bad and I can understand that.
Bot answers like: This is a **cleanup and then you must have technical features enables to see 1 field (which as you know download +5mb of js not compressed) introducing a huge usability hole... It is clearly misguided:
At least in my bad english I do not understand the proper concept of such word obviously.... :-(
