I guess I don't view it as inappropriate to illustrate a point with an example. Sorry, but I'm not really planning on changing that. But I'm sure Tyche would much rather that I use negative examples from Ruby. (Ohhhhh yeah. You know what's funny: IMHO it would actually be very rude to go out of my way to poke holes in Tyche's "hobby horse".) I find it remarkable that a post whose sole content is "false false false" is actually considered to be remotely valuable by its poster. If Tyche deigns to grace us with actual explanations so that people (including myself) can learn and benefit, I'm sure the world will be a better place. For instance, he seems to think, contrary to the opinions of many language developers, that multiple inheritance is a great feature. So maybe we could all learn something from him. In the meantime, all we have is a grumpy dude who sees fit to be personally insulting when a conversation doesn't go the way he likes.
