Sometimes I wish I could downvote stories like this (and I use that term very loosely in this case) and have HN automatically ignore any votes by anyone who upvoted it from that point forward on every other post. That way I could filter out things people upvote without reading the actual post.

Sure it would scale terribly, but it would make me feel a lot better.

Applying collective intelligence to news aggregators? Sounds like a start up idea to me. Go for it, I'll subscribe if it works.

I'm surprised the D programming language hasn't taken off. It's been around longer, has a better feature set, and doesn't use ancient programming language syntax. To each his own...

D has competing "standard" libraries, no major backers, and no "killer features". It may be a net gain over C++, but it lacks flash, marketing, and arguments compelling enough to overcome inertia, while having one major wart that turns people off (the library situation).

D is doomed, but not because there's something fundamentally wrong with it, but by circumstance.

My first question was "what library situation?" so in case anyone else reads the comment above and asks the same question:
