This reads to me as, “You filthy FP advocate, you have no clue what real maintenance is!” I’m not saying the type checker alone is enough to perform large scale maintenance, you and I both know there is more to it than that.

At the end of the day, sure, we all have opinions on tools and how they make our lives better. You and I may not agree that FP is the right tool, but I’m not going to make sweeping generalizations that you know nothing about large scale development and and maintenance solely based on your language paradigm choice and a few focused HN comments.
