It strikes me as a pretty odd statement, though. I'll admit that I'm not very familiar with Go, but surely you can look back at the benefits of generics in other languages? Go is hardly so specialised that you can't learn a single lesson from elsewhere.

I agree, I didn't find the statement refreshing at all, I found it insulting. You damn well know the use-cases for generics. If you still don't like it; fine, say that explicitly. Don't pussyfoot around it and play the "we just don't know that much about it yet" lie.
