Actually, I think it's a reaction to the snowstorms hitting the US - 
getting sucked into an email discussion is an alternative to taking a 
walk outside.

But maybe that's just me :-)

Though... I really am interested in knowing what languages people here 
use in their "day jobs" - as someone else asked.  Obviously, a lot of 
folks here use Erlang - most of the traffic on the list is about real 
erlang-questions (and answers) - signs of a pretty good community.

  But for the folks who've been jumping into this discussion, I'm kind 
of curious - are the folks complaining about lack of adoption, naming, 
standards, etc. active users, or kibitzers?
