What you are letting a hacker news comment thread determine the history of JavaScript? This isn't how history is written - HN posts are emphera for the most part. Last time I checked you were not exactly powerless and reliant on others to write history for you. You have a megaphone, why not use it and write something authoritative on the history of JavaScript and Dart.

Also, you do realize that I wrote this to a Dart audience to encourage them to return to JavaScript -- and you do not convince anyone to change their minds by being an asshole towards their work.

It's HN, I'm here same as you, to opine and argue. Why are you applying a double standard? :-P
