    Actually, it's right in there in his post, if you trim the excess fat away from the meat:

    I feel absolutely certain in saying that “programming-language popularity contests” simply do not matter. Do not bother with them.

      Except this wasn’t a popularity contest. This was a survey of active professional programmers and probably the biggest one anyone has ever conducted given the growth of the SO community. So even the single nugget of near sanity you mined from that study of experimental laxative output was misguided, misplaced, misinformed.
