|I've been a Ruby dev and a Rails dev for about two years now. I've always found the former to be an enjoyable, elegant language to write in, and the later to be a wonderful framework that makes use of some great patterns and gems. I'm not only a Ruby and Rails dev; I also enjoy programming in JS and I've been teaching myself Python as well.|
Lately, especially after these security vulnerabilities became public, I've seen a lot of hate directed towards both the Ruby and the Rails community.
I'm curious as to why this is, and I'd like to get HN's input on this. The Ruby community has a lot of drama from time to time, but that's the only reason I can think of. Where is the hate coming from of people who say everybody should just throw out Ruby, stop using Rails, etc.?
