Everybody wants to know what's going on with this but we should leave it to Twitter, Reddit, blogs, etc. There is very little actual Mathematics in the discussion I linked to.
(I am supposed to ask a question) Why not?
I see a reasonable amount of mathematics in the answers, together with links to relevant discussions and papers.
I think the question is not about gossip, and it is a valuable service to mathematicians who are not themselves experts in the relevant topic such as myself.
I should probably add that I find the topic of obvious mathematical interest, and the links and surrounding discussion useful. The gossip, not so much.
