Why do you think that? If I understand correctly you're saying the spins 
must be equals for the spins community to effectively serve as a place 
for folks to try new/different things? I don't follow the logic.

E.g., I kind of see the spins community as a way of giving folks the 
freedom to innovate and try new/different things (maybe as a proving 
ground at times) without disrupting the main/default spin.
