probably from authors that never got comfortable with them themselves.


or maybe got paid to support some language that is safe (secure).

security or the opposite of it, fear, sells a lot in modern times.

i don't know what is it these days, but everyone is trying to jump on you with a zealot yelling that you are doing something wrong. that you're incompetent. loser. that they are going to open your eyes with this new way, new programming language, new framework...

ok, i get that. these are lamer times. instead of friendship there is mostly ridicule, which makes everybody look bad in the eye of the beholder.

although new or old things have interesting ideas, nothing is black and white.

"if somebody is selling you a technique in convincing you that there is something that you should do, they're focusing on the benefits and they are either gonna be downplaying the drawbacks or they'll be ignoring them completely" - Jonathan Blow on Software Quality at the CSUA GM2
