Wow, am I that disconnected from other developers? My ranking, from most complaining to least, with the languages I have experience in, would be:

Visual Basic
HTML/CSS (I know it's not a language)
Javascript
Ruby
Python
C
SQL
C# / C++
Assembly

As to why:

Visual Basic - because most code people write is awful, though I will, I'm impressed with a lot of the VB code here on CP.

HTML/CSS - because it's inconsistent, obtuse, and hardly ever does what you expect.

Javascript - because.

Ruby - MethodMissing. Need I say more? (See Python)

Python - Duck typing, some things are cool, but self gets quite tedious, debugging script languages is a PITA, and I want C#.

C - I want C#

SQL - Can be complicated and weird, but usually just works.

C# / C++ - The Happy Zone

Assembly - Yes, assembly I have the least complaints with because it is the ultimate simple, you get what you code, language. Though, perhaps I speak naively of the days of 6502, Z80, and 8086/8088 programming. Smile | :)
