Accusing everyone who avoids javascript that they can't be bothered to learn it is pretty extreme.

I personally would choose any other modern language over javascript.


I've learnt it and used it 8 or 9 years now, to me it just sucks. And still no-one knows how to write it well, no-one agrees how to structure it and every 2 years there is a whole new way to write javascript that comes out. I'm beginning to suspect it's because there is no good way to write it.
