One stupidity is global variables by default unless you use var every single time.

Fail! That's not entirely true for reasons that are obvious if you understand the language. Nice repeated meme though.

If your data is full of 64-bit integers, tough.

Or just use a bigint library, like users of other languages have done for years.

Really, if that's the best you manage, I'd love to see what language you think is well-designed. I guarantee that I can offer a criticism far more convincing that the one you've offered here.

Try learning the language first. You'll find that forming your own informed opinions is far more rewarding than the cheap up-mod you get for repeating nonsense.

Well, what can I say. jQuery is used by 80% of the top 10,000 most visited sites

McDonald's sells billions of hamburgers. I guess they must be of exceptional quality, right?

But then I am sure you have done nothing, and you are nobody

I'm sure you do. Belief without evidence is very common among the hopelessly irrational.

On Resig and his incompetence, I'll direct you to any of his books or to the jquery and jstat source. If that's not enough to convince you he's laughably incompetent, I'll direct you to comp.lang.javascript. There's a reason he banned his followers from reading that newsgroup.

Well said. There are some really great developers out there that you'll likely never here about. Roland p on Atariage, for example, deserves a mention for his Ballblazer 2600 work. Really, a lot of the hobbyists there top-notch.

I'll bet you'll find quite a few well-above-average developers in communities like that.
