Here’s Andy Bell with a post called the (extremely) loud minority. 

Always remember that although a subset of the JavaScript community can be very loud, they represent a paltry portion of the web as a whole. This means that when they say something like “Best practices don’t actually work”—what they mean is “Best practices don’t actually work for a small subset of less than 5 percent of the web”.

Setting aside the specific barbs levied against React and its advocates, this post’s message is important. Only a small subset of the web industry is out there on Twitter, blogging, making courses, speaking at conferences, hosting YouTube shows, etc. The web is a lot bigger than those voices, and it’s important to keep that in mind when choosing tools, taking advice, and figuring out how to go about making something.

This holds true for other aspects of life. We’re all influenced by cable news shows, political parties, loud podcasts, and publications, et al, but society is so much more than those channels. Reminding myself of this fact helps keep me out of a despair spiral whenever those particularly loud voices steal my attention.

I think it’s incredibly important for people that have large audiences to consider the impact of their words. I think it’s important to preserve and promote nuance when communicating. I think hot takes, combative tone, and black-and-white thinking can often be harmful and counterproductive. I think it’s important to recognize that any person’s perspective — including your own — doesn’t represent the whole picture. I think the larger a person’s reach is, the more responsibility they have to follow this advice.
