That looks sensationalist. Why then earth is not covered with bamboo?

It think it depends on the species of bamboo, and the species they're competing against.

I frequently visit a place with tropical forest near Rio since 1992, and there are some bamboo here and there, some of different species, and they stay pretty much the same size. They will only spread around if you make room for it by cutting nearby trees.

There is a smaller species that do spread around quickly, but still can't penetrate the established forest.

Lack of openess.

From Walter Bright, creator of D (emphasis mine):

My natural tendency is to work solo on things. My work performance reviews at the various jobs I've had usually included comments like "Walter needs to learn to work better with others." My desire to control everything nearly wrecked the D community at one point, and I've had to change.
