But this is just plain stupid.

"At [insert mailing list THEY sent to] there are probably a lot of [insert 
programming language] programmers, so these figures cannot be taken too 
seriously."

So the possibility that a very high percent of erlang developers are using 
it for parallel programming did not occur to the authors?

On the other hand, this whole survey seems to be bogus. If you remove the 
130 Erlang answers you remove more than half of the total answers (256). I 
have no idea how they manage to get any results at all from that.
