The survey respondents may have meant VB-Classic, VBA, and/or VB-Script.

Incidentally, they are generally fine for smaller projects in my opinion. It's when you try to build something complex with them that you get into knots. Languages best for big projects are rarely best for small projects and vice verse. Use the right tool for the job.

Indeed. I never understood that circular logic. Perhaps somebody of that persuasion can explain how it (allegedly) works for us.

Businesses want control, and if you don't properly regulate them, they'll use every method they have to gain their desired control. I see the government functioning like referees. Without referees a game would become a dirty slugfest instead of a skillfest. Basketball and wrestling would be the same sport. Sure, refs are sometimes stupid, but anybody in any institution can likewise be stupid.
