Dear Sylvain,

you aren't exactly a beacon of sunshine either. You like to make
normative claims all over the place, but when asked to defend them, you
only have names to call people. Maybe C++ is genuinely as horrible as
you say. I have seen evidence of that. But most of it boils down to "if
you use it wrong, it turns into spagghetti code in a pretty dress".
Well, C's the same way, sans pretty dress.

That first sentence of David's answer is merely the logical conclusion
of thinking your restrictions to the end.

Nothing personal,
