The "Javascript is a shitty language" argument is getting old. I feel like you're only admitting that you're too lazy to learn how to program with a prototype-based language. You even suggest Coffeescript which is big on making Javascript like an OOP language when it's really not.

As far as a reason why you might "hobble" yourself is because Javascript is great at asynchronous design. You should try checking it out for real instead of jumping on the opinion bandwagon.




Oh man oh man.

JavaScript is deeply object-oriented.

How does the age of the argument impact its validity.

If you don't like Erlang you are just admitting you are too lazy to learn the actor model. See I'll just call you "lazy" it will validate my argument.

> because Javascript is great at asynchronous design.

Not disagreeing with you here, but it would help if you'd actually mention why. You said something about it being a prototype based language. Is that why you think it is great at asynchronous design?
