Is C# therefore "hateful", because you can't do that as quickly and efficiently with it?


You've obviously misunderstood my criticisms in the OP.

It has nothing to do with what can be done efficiently with it.

It has to do with:

A) a kludgy grammar.

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. "="

It's stupid.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
