But did you, while reading this, encounter every one of the five tpyos I put in here?
I didn't! And yet, I fully understood what you were trying to express. I vastly prefer to autocorrecting my mind does (without even being aware of it) of your readings than throwing an exception on each of your typos.

So, for me, your argument is really "if you prefer 5 interrupts when reading a single paragraph, instead of just do ing the right thing, use strict; is just the tool for you". Now, don't get me wrong, I often use strict myself, but I find your "spotting the typos" example a very convincing argument.

    I assume your reply was quite clever intentionally. All your arguments seem to be against his typo metaphor, yet you conclude by saying that it is "very convincing".

    Sure, I could conclude that your presumed error was done intentionally to further illustrate your point. However you have also included so many other errors (relative to word count) that my own mind threw several exceptions while reading your response. Thus the syntax of your argument against his metaphor actually supports it. So what meaning were you truly trying to convey?

    I'm reminded of Paul Atreides thoughts on Harkonnen plotting: "plans within plans".
