    we do rely on syntax, but saying we rely too much on the syntax is like saying, "you worry too much about grammar."
    yea well you sort of have to in -any- context to communicate anything in understandable terms.
    Stop quibbling.

    And of course I have dealed with OOP and used most of those features. You don't expect everyone to fall in love with OOP once (s)he has used it, do you?

    An example: when you tell a C++ programmer that he must do something in C then he may be like "Oh my god what am I going to do now!?" - that's relying on a syntax (or a paradigm, as you say). Just an example - can be related to any programming language. BUT, a real programmer can program in any syntax/paradigm that (s)he is given, as long as it has no restrictions.

    And that has been the whole point - procedural and object-oriented are different, but neither of them is better. It's like which one is better - apple or pear?

    If I weren't a moderator, I'd ask if I could join you.

    As it is, I'm afraid I must terminate this.
