As a participant. I hope it can remain a reasonably rational, reasonably
fact based conversation even if it is a passionate one.

The reason I engaged the discussion is that I don't like reading
arguments against C++ that were written against and before C++11/14 and
its preferred model of programming. When there are possibly C++
advocates who may agree with some of the pre-C++11/14 arguments against,
but say we don't program that way.

It is easy to disregard old arguments when you don't know if they have
much fact for the current situation.

I think it is hard to imply anything here. Email is a incredibly
difficult medium to convey things across multiple cultures and
languages. And many not native to English.

It could simply be how do I refer to you as a he or she in conversation.
Even with my own name. It is predominantly male. I am male. very male,
husband, father, grandfather. But there are a reasonable number of women
with this name. So it is hard to assume anything, especially across
cultures and languages.
