These are chat archives for bem/talk
About "semantic html" that was mentioned by @RuslanZavacky I guess we should not mess BEM with it, because these two thing are from different contexts, but anyway it is good to use semantically correct names and it should choose developer instead of should be described in BEM methodology. May be it may work good together.
About ".author__data-wrapper > .contact-info". It is't a cascade or some kind of safe cascade :) (please correct me if I'm not right). But I found another example like ".contact-info .author__e-mail" and this one I guess should be a mistake. Am I right?
