Request to Core devs; please explain your vision on increasing the block size.

I'm relatively new to the debate, very strongly anti-BU/EC but am mildly in favor of/don't see the problem with bigger blocks/a planned hard-fork. Please, educate me on your view as to if the max block size should ever change, if not why not, if yes how, etc.

REQUEST to users of ‘both’ subreddits; engage in the scaling debate only if you REALLY understand the technical intricacies.

Noticed far too many comments on both /r/btc and /r/Bitcoin on the lines of

i used to support X, but after reading this I now support Y

B wrote this insane thing , therefore I am now supporting Z

Bitcoin ain't a religion – Avoid being absolute in support/defense of any approach. Look at all approaches critically.

If you understand bitcoin EXTREMELY extremely well, have the technical know how, AND understand the points in support of a particular thing and any counter arguments of those points (recursively) ONLY then, take part in the debate.

TLDR: Novices like me, lets not take sides! Bitcoin is Extremely complicated. Owning/following/ Bitcoin or reading articles/opinions does not make you competent (for the debate).

Thanks
– I Love Bitcoin

Cross posting to other subreddit as well.
