‘Sir Drupal of Drupingtown, protector of all things Drupal-ly’
Mon, 09/26/2011 - 5:04pm — decibel.places
A team member - who will go unnamed - offered to knight me ‘Sir Drupal of Drupingtown, protector of all thing [sic] Drupal-ly’ if I demonstrated a stable homepage built with panels.
What led up to that offer:
I wrote, "When I came back from being out sick, I discovered – nobody told me – that you ditched the panels homepage entirely and replaced it with a node template. I am here to bring our site into line with best practices for Drupal. I do not care if “that is how we have always done it” if there is a better “Drupal-ly” way."
Here are his replies:

Repost your work and if it renders properly – Kudos. If not, you are making yourself look bad. Push your files to dev and test. If everything works correctly, then I stand corrected and will go on record as Randall Goya being knighted ‘Sir Drupal of Drupingtown, protector of all thing [sic] Drupal-ly’. I have stated my position. I have work to do. Good day, sir. I say Good Day.

I am more than ready to endorse a stable version of the homepage. Stable being the word, not ‘Drupal-ly’. There are many different varieties of Kool-Aid not just the blue dot version. I am sure that everyone at the Drupal meeting drink [sic] from the Drupal teat.

I vote for simple, stable, clean. Panels adds instability, code bloat and complexity with the code being distributed between panels, blocks, views, modules, etc…
