Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Colin Pretorius recently wrote a post which cuts right to the heart of why we should all like Java (as opposed to LotusScript, I mean):
That's why I like Java. Testosterone! I churn out convoluted lines of explicitly-cast, temporarily-instantiating, horrendously-nested chaos and I feel like a man, dammit. After years of being seen as a bottom-of-the-foodchain, lesser-than-VB @formula and baby scripting-language developer who sits in the kitchen at ubergeek parties, I fear the snooty masses no longer.

Man, he sounds like me when I talk about capitalism.  Go get 'em, Colin!  You'll get your Corner Office yet.
