[flagged] How Kotlin Calamity Devours Your Java Apps Like Cancer? (hackernoon.com)

This is the second post this week I've seen someone comparing something good with cancer. If you've ever seen someone die due to cancer, that's a weird title, especially because it has nothing to do with the content.

I understand what you're saying, but is it possible that the author sees this from the point of view of Java?

Exactly my sentiment!

I've fixed the title to be less negative.

Probably, that is even better metaphor: "... Like Lightning?"

"Keep reading to see what it is." Is this pretending to be crap style or authentic crap style? In my opinion it doesn't matter.

I think it's probably a side effect of translating into English, and I want to support people communicating even in a language in which they're not fluent.

But the mangled English is too much in this case. It hurts my brain to read. :(

Hey, so what would be the better way to say it?

It sounds click-baity and is probably making people think of other internet junk like "you'll never believe this crazy trick to do X". It's also just an unnecessary sentence since the reader is already expecting that if they keep reading you'll give more details.

Ok. Got you.
