  Yes.  Standards are prescriptive.  You understand them, you adhere
  to them, /then/ have your own opinions.

  Is it not wonderful?  Nobody has randomly messed with the language
  to fit some misunderstandings or added cruft to fit some marketing
  scheme.  Imagine a programming language that is /not/ a weapon in
  someone else's marketing war, but is stable and has proven useful
  to actual /programmers/ over a whole decade!  Is it not amazing?

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
