fundamentally, as a narrow-minded, often statically-typed-bigoted,
jerk, i don't understand how anybody could see javascript and think
"this is *so good* we *have* to extend its use to all other areas of
programming endeavour!"

i mean at least i get Dialyzer, QuickCheck in the Erlang world. :-)
yeah, ok, all languages have problems, and javascript gets blamed for
issues that are really in the DOM and the individual browsers, but
even leaving those things aside, i still don't like it. :-)

apologies, end of rant, shutting up.
sincerely.
