Yeah, I'm not the biggest fan of the syntax still either. That said, the phrasing of your comment is unkind and its contents don't provide any useful feedback.


Please don't misinterpret in this way. This is a candid reaction. As you indicate, it confirms your previous observations. This is not an opinion of you or any other Rust developer. It is an opinion of the syntax, period.

It's unkind to call someone else's work "awful," even if its meant in a very minor way (even if I agree with it!). It's a low value comment when it doesn't provide any concrete feedback on top of that. Our industry has abysmal standards for discourse and I'm not sure why you think that's important to apologize for and normalize.

Some pushback: The syntax used in your example is WAY cleaner to my eyes than competing UI solutions in Rust today.
