  It looks like you produced the insanity you insist on stuffing into
  somebody else's mouth.  Try and grow up so you can accept full
  responsibility for your own lack of ability to think clearly.

  Here's a clue for you: We're not talking about languages you invent.
  Here's another clue for you: Bad craftsmanship begets higher demand
  for (bad) craftsmen.  And yet another clue: If it is so hard to
  become good at a language that nobody really does, the people who
  get hired and fired shortly thereafter will be alarmingly higher
  than for a language that it is possible to learn really well,
  because the people who do are not in as high circulation.

  Go back to hacking some Perl and C++, now, "fella".  Those languages
  are more suitable to people of your intellectual prowess than you
  will understand, or admit if you do.

  I agree with everything you say, but I would
  attack to death your right to say it.
