@BHiller Or, it boils down to some programmers have a bias, a prejudice, for, or against, FP or OOP ... that they cannot articulate, or cannot describe any specific example they have actually encountered ?

It is inevitable we have biases, and, it is a fact that many programmers tend to "fall in love" with their languages/tools to a certain degree, sometimes comically extreme ... I think of a hilarious encounter I had with a FORTH "messiah" in the 1970's.

I like Gandhi's statement: "I want the winds of all the cultures to blow around my house, but I don't want to be knocked over by any of them."

By the way, I hate VB WTF | :WTF:
