Imagine, I want to present you a friend of mine, so we meet at a cafe.
Instead of coming with my mate, I come with my mate and your mate, and I bash your mate, knocking his head on the table, then bitting his ear, make his mouth bleed, and explain you my mate is cool, you should hang out with him sometimes…. What would you do ??
So JS fans are so heavily and emotionally invested in the language that criticisms of JS is an affront to their sensibilities, likening it to a close friend? I find that kind of zealotry funny. A programming language is just a tool. Can one be emotionally invested in a hammer or a circular saw?
