Yes, you're a saint, and anyone who disgarees with you is obviously evil, stupid, hateful, etc.
If you were to read this thread without your "goggles of personal distortion" on, you would see that I have not insulted you, I have not perverted your words, and I have simply pointed out/complained that your words and behaviour in the OP of this thread are unwelcome, because if you insult someone's tools so wrongly and cruelly, then you are also insulting the user.
How many VB users feel less welcome here, after reading your words?
Probably all of them.
If you don't like a language, say you don't like it; don't say it's stupid, kludgy, hateful, etc, etc, etc.
Lots of people don't like VB (replace "VB" with any other language) here, so they say "I hate it!", not "It's hateful!"
But, as I said, you obviously believe that you are a saint, and above such things as equality (and certainly above users of VB), so I must be a bad person for pointing out your abusive behaviour.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
B) forcing you to explicitly do things that should be implicit like implementing a method of an interface through a public method, or comparing value types and reference types without worrying about "Is" vs. "="
I will definitely agree that VB's syntax is kludgy in some areas such as lambda and anonymous functions. On the other hand, being forced to be explicitly identify interfaces has a lot of benefit when verifying the correctness of software. Ambiguity is the enemy of correctness.
Today started with my coffee machine taking its own life. As I have an emergency backup, I still managed a cup of getoutdahouse.
Then Mrs Wife offers to drive us in as 14 had an exam. The car broke down. We got it back from a service on Monday and think it's related.
Finally the kettle, I am reliably informed, has joined the coffee machine in electronic suicide. Maybe they had a pact...
So car's back in the garage.
Coffee machine repair organised.
New kettle purchased.
I suspect he might get away (literally) with it on his first day, but it might raise some questions once everyone recognizes his face...
Would have been safer to grab the coffee machine from his old job
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
