Blub paradox trolling contest

Is there some kind of Blub paradox trolling contest going on this week? If so, I would like to nominate Lawrence Kesteloot. Lawrence's post stood out above a crowded field for several reasons:

  • Thinking that languages make code "production" or "toy". The noun he was looking for is developers.
  • Believing that expressiveness hurts readability.
  • Providing an example against something (Lisp) without an example for anything. This is an example of the Creationist Fallacy: Raise an objection to something (e.g. evolution) without providing any positive evidence for anything else, then declare victory.
  • Criticizing Paul Graham while documenting his own Blub level for all to see. Priceless.
