How about the people who claim it's tedious and sprawling*?

Simple example...

Java: BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(""));
Python: in = open('')
Ruby: in ='')
C++: ifstream in;"");

To be fair, I'm no Java expert, but in my experience with it, I'd have to be masochistic to look at it all day...
