Thank heavens for all those (...er, well, " MOST of those..." ) who write about code.
I frequently benefit from their wisdom. And that's certainly true about parts of this thread. But /me can't help but wonder whether it might not be well to shift some of the energy going into comment here back to coding, per se.
I - for one -- would rather spend time writing code and reading about better ways to do so.
No -- I'm not implying that I see this thread as an example of the usual "religious wars" claptrap about why X is (insert laudatory or disparaging verb here) than Y... but (pretty please?) can we go back to being a quiet little Monastery on a hill, standing apart from that which even smacks of jihadism/crusading/suchlike?
