It would be impossible to for me to ignore the substance of your response, Anonymous Coward, there being no substance for me to ignore.
You have supported your contention that there is some dire problem here by basically saying "See? Lots of people here agree with me. I must be right!" Hardly conclusive evidence.
On the other hand, I have made it clear that I am speaking from my own personal experience, right, wrong, or otherwise. If you consider yourself to be more credible, try signing your name for a change, and speaking to your own experiences. That would be productive.
As for solutions moving forward with or without people like myself, you are being a bit unrealistic. Preaching to the choir of like-minded people who believe that "something must be done or Ruby/PHP will beat us!" isn't going to solve the problem you claim exists. If anything, you have to sell the sceptics and nay-sayers first.
So convince me. I've already stated my reasons for believing as I do. You haven't done anything except attack my right to do so.
"You haven't done anything except attack my right to do so."
You are projecting again.# anonymous
