The comp.lang.ruby newsgroup is abuzz with the comments made by Larry Wall about the Ruby programming language. The thread is well over 100 messages strong by now, and has naturally degenerated into topics like, "+ vs . as a string concatenation operator", as though that were a highly important issue or something.
I'm sick of seeing messages pop up about it in the mailing list now. So today I sent a reply that contained just one word - "Hitler". Think that will kill the thread?
