  because it doesn't pay to use advertising to reach a mass market and then
  have to weed out all the doofuses who lie about their skills, which is a
  very noticeable cost in advertising for programmers in other languages.

  professional marketing people do not believe advertising in mass media is
  the best solution to all problems.  neither should anybody else.
