I did think it was an April Fools joke at first. (Oh, how we've all been trained).

But I got to thinking about the recent paper that was done analyzing contributions to repos on github [1] and thought that of that actual 10% of active users, there might be some with unhealthy tendencies.

I don't think that the contribution graph should be removed but I can see how it would be a net-negative to someone with those unhealthy tendencies.
