i do use it... but i'd like to see statistics regarding how prevalent it's usage really is. I mean beyond the geek circle :)

my guess is that adbloc isn't really an issue (unless firefox and chrome make it a default plugin).

of course the point that marketing effect on consumer behavior is largely unconcious remains.. so that's the real handicap on this study

those conclusions are drawn without controling for a language usage. Since c++ is widely adopted so there will be more instances of a comment where "WTF?" is used.

Why don't use a percentage at least? Even if that was the case, the problem remains... a wtf-y language may be the most avoided and/or not present in github

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
