Thanks for the generalization. Those of us who are hybdid programmers must all hate what we do then... But I like what I do, therefore, I don't exist. Crap.

Update: The alternate version of this is (thanks to L~R point it out), should be, sorry to hear your java guys are like that and sorry if I did misunderstand. If you meant that about all, my post still stands :)

Give me strength for today.. I will not talk it away..
Just for a moment.. It will burn through the clouds.. and shine down on me.

    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
