    Enough language discussions.

    Posts like:

    Which language should I learn?
    Which language is better?
    Java rules, C/C++ drools.
    BASIC can do more than C/C++.

    Shall I go on?These are kind of ridiculous since they are posted on a
    C/C++ programming board

    emphasis:C/C++ programming board

    I've yet to figure out in all my years here why people come here thinking they are going to convince the masses that another language is better or a better choice than C/C++.
    Even if there were a better choice, which there isn't, you think we'd ever admit to it here?

    Please let's talk C/C++ on the programming forums since that's what this board is about. More and more I'm seeing language questions come up in the C board, C++ board, Game dev board, etc. They belong here, if they belong anywhere.

    Thanks in advance to any future computer language crusaders and/or evangelists who might drop in. Your efforts are in vain, though.

    Off to the Chevy board to ask which is better....Chevy or Ford.

    Hey! Brain.......... owns C/C++!!1!11111

    I agree with you, bubba.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    >Which language should I learn?
    It's a fair question, though not a very smart one to ask in such a biased forum. However, there are a few objective people here who can answer it properly.

    >Which language is better?
    This is a silly question most of the time. It's asked out of ignorance, and in that I agree with you Bubba.

    >Java rules, C/C++ drools.
    Senseless trolling, just like our Python advocate.

    >BASIC can do more than C/C++.
    Uninformed opinion with a little insanity mixed in. These questions should be shot too.

    >you think we'd ever admit to it here?
    Yes. To deny the faults of C or C++ would be silly.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
