> so WHERE he claims that he DESIGNED the language?
oh please, read through that web page and tell me that he's not trying to give the impression that the language is his, that he designed it, that it was his idea etc. etc.
just because he hasn't written the words "I designed this language" then he's not saying he designed the language?
if that's the impression that people are getting, then that's the fault of the author NOT the people reading it.
now let's all take a break from standing in the pedantry corner and get some work done...

To emphasize why that annoys me seems utterly redundant, so please just
remove all the crap everyone has issues with and knock this thread off
the list finally.
