I agree that there is no point in shaming (in fact, there is a lot of harm
in shaming, everybody who intentionally shames other people needs to have
a look at https://psycnet.apa.org/doiLanding?doi=10.1037%2Femo0000542 to
find out what harm they are doing).

That is why I suggested to be more explicit, not to shame.

Of course, that illustrates that I apparently think a lot differently
about this issue: in contrast to you, I do not think that MSVC does a
particularly bad thing here, even if it dares disagree with GCC. :-)

Ciao,
