What a bizarre comment. Let's fill in your analogy a little, shall we?
GitHub, Rails, and Homakov are drinking in a bar. Everyone in the bar knows that, if you don't whitelist your wallet, Rails will steal it and punch you in the face. This aspect of Rails is well documented and everyone in the bar laughs when stupid noobs come in from the street and get their wallets stolen and faces punched.
Homakov grows tired of the game and tells Rails to quit being so hard on noobs. Rails ignores him, Homakov persists. Rails gets irritated and tells him everybody loves things the way thtey are and nobody really cares -- the only people who get their faces punched are the ones asking for it.
Homakov still disagrees but, since Rails is such a popular guy, he isn't getting anywhere. So He goes up to GitHub, one of Rails's best friends, and punches HIM in the face. Just lightly on the cheek, no damage done, but the point is made. Everybody in the bar is shocked and suddenly feel rather vulenrable... If it's so easy to punch GitHub in the face, then it's easy to punch ANYBODY in the face.
Rails suddenly realizes he's been acting like an asshole and agrees to change. GitHub was angry at first but that passed quickly and he and Homakov are good friends again. Everyone in the bar feels sheepish for pretending that nothing was wrong. Everybody agrees that it shouldn't have come to that but sometimes you're so wrapped up in your own drink that you lose sight of the bigger picture. Once in a while you need a Homakov to shake you out of your complacency.
And everybody lived happily ever after. Does that answer your question?
