I don’t know if you actually believe this, or you’re defining write as in literally type letters that compile instead of being able to write useful productive code in each.

This is not a productive use of my time because either you have no idea what you’re talking about, or you do but you’re intentionally throwing basic reasoning skills straight out the window and leaning heavily into playing games with semantics to support your point at all costs.
