Have I tried to develop anything using it? No.

Have I looked at the source code on numerous occasions, trying to come to terms with it's verbosity and ugliness? Yes.

  | verbosity and ugliness
Subjective metrics to define objective reality? Say it ain't so.

True. It is inherently subjective. I knew I would receive some flak making that last argument about ObjC being ugly, but I felt the urge to be a little sloppy to see if it resonated with anyone.

Also, my verbosity argument would be hard to defend without concrete examples of equivalent functionality being performed more succinctly (while still maintaining readability) in another language. That would be hard given my ignorance of ObjC. I withdraw that argument.
