"Looking at job vacancies gives some languages higher ratings than are probably realistic, due to the verbosity of the language."

When I said a good method is to look at job vacancies and see what languages are required and how much the salary is.

This was a Rule of Thumb

Of course there are exceptions, that goes without saying and there are cases for all languages to be used in specific situations.

But I think your statement will cause a lot of animosity in both camps if you seriously think.
