Weird pathology among authors of perf tools where they dump unusable microoptimization issues on open source projects. The highlight a few years ago was UChicago studying responses. Their ERB was weirdly fine with experimenting on maintainers with zero pre/post disclosure.
The authors are weirdly convinced that littering useless unmaintainable hacks is valuable. And I guess UChicago doesn't consider software maintainers human - in any other situation they probably would've said "huh it's maybe bad to secretly test things on strangers".
