I disagree. It is an attempt to put the OP down. The tool may not have people writing code, but they are programming. They have define algorithms through the use of data types, loops, conditionals, etc. What the OP did is noteworthy because he/she was able to create cool games with the limitations of the tools (and went as far as adding his own JS).

No software these days is run or built without the help of others. Why make such comment? It is not constructive nor does it aim to develop the conversation.

You can disagree all that you like. What you cannot do is ascribe intention to my posts.

At any rate, I think that you're so focused on the specific case of the OP that you've missed the point of my post. That's fine. I expected contention over my use of the word "programming", and apparently I should have been more pedantic.

I was not focusing on your post. My point is geared towards the parent comment, and not yours. Not looking to argue. We both share the same view.
