sporty,
We obviously didn't parse the AM's statement the same way. Since the title of the poll is My cow-orkers mostly..., I read it as:

Of my cow-orkers, the Java guys despise..
The opinion that this was not a generalization but a distinct select group became stronger when I read the last sentence: I'd like to rewrite my managers in Perl

The word 'my' ne 'all'. In any case, I agree that in general, people make a lot of generalizations on things offend the group as a whole or at least individuals that do not fit the generalization. I just didn't see that happening here.

Cheers - L~R

[perldigious]: Nice erix... perldigious' legs are so sore from portaging his kayak from place to place last weekend he can barely hobble 12m. :-)
[erix]: you're faster than me then :)
[erix]: well, at the moment, that is :)
[erix]: I should lose some weight although I keep telling myself that I'm doing extra training by lugging it along
[erix]: I saw a common kingfisher and a couple of bullfinches
[erix]: bullfinch ( a male and a female )
erix learned the word 'portaging' not so long ago (from vikings lugging their ships from one river-system to another)
[choroba]: my best run so far
[erix]: I think they build a portaging installation for yachts here not so long ago - lemme google it
[erix]: choroba ah, you should have sprinted 7 s off that :)
