The problem with flame wars is that they always end up with
misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
I believe that's the word "oddball" which triggered the flames (rather
warm than burning...). I predicted the flame fest because of its use.
It has a negative flavor, like "only C syntax is fine".
Should you have just written "executives won't accept Lua because they
are used to a C-like syntax and won't take anything else", OK, fine for
them. But don't judge other syntaxes. Some people like only mathematical
notation-like languages, others (not many) love old Cobol for its
verbose lines (ADD B TO C GIVING D, or something like that...).
That's a matter of tastes and habits.
