Charles Heywood:
i also don't really know how to make difference, like where to draw the line.

Erik Hougaard:
i think it's a game, as people can pick or deny a language by rankings
like this. people are so much influenced by feedbacks. i think all the
lua world can only benefit from this, and i'm happy to support lua, as
i like it so much.

Andrew Starks:
right, but this leads too far, tiobe would be incapable to handle
every single keyword related to programming languages, but a few more
popular implementations for lua could flt there, but if people see
that there are 8 kinda different keywords next to lua, then they will
do the research for their languages, and start a race. therefor i gave
you the decision about what to do.
