why is filibuster even a word relating to something typically serious
it sounds way too fantastic[?] to be taken seriously in that manner

i mean the example i found on google makes it sound like a special move

“it was defeated by a Senate filibuster in June”"

First: Funny to see that you use double “=” to compare gradle and cheese :smile:

When I heard JSON and havn’t worked with it I thought of some sweets. Bitter sweets.
When I started to really use JSON it’s for me some sort of salad out of { and } :smile: But it’s cool. Since then I get eye cancer everytime i see XML.
