That is a really fun -- and typical! -- claim when your GP is a Python troll arguing that another open source language should just die... :-)
Frankly, I've never seen so much language trolls as Python trolls. (And no one needs multi line lambdas and hence real map functions, anyway...)
I don't know much about the Ruby community, but I have a hard time believing they can be worse.
Edit: But sure, the language trolls here might just a few idi... people. There are lots of you with just a few hundreds karma.
Second, this trolling attitude seems built in with the Python purity philosophy. It reminds me more of islamists and other religious fanatics than of anything else.
