    The people who built stackoverflow and Discourse seems to be too much opinionated and edgy. They feel industry should follow them blindly. I had a lot of such instances noticed on stackoverflow. I am wondering why they want to have such impression on others.

    I remember trying to use Discourse Meta with Adblock once and the extension just made the whole thing whitescreen...

    Github gets a very diverse crowd, so they probably want something that actually works without JavaScript, comes from a high profile source, looks reasonably modern (not something that our grandparents would have come up with) and has a reasonably high level of support.

    Github has their own forum software now too. And I should note briefly that Github is owned by Microsoft, so that could be interesting.
