Other successful computer languages do not have that problem. Any competent C programmer can maintain any C code, and the same for python and Java. Perl is arguable; the problem is not complexity but opaqueness.

I'm not sure that's true. I feel quite certain I can write Java or C code that others will have trouble maintaining (in fact, I already have)

this is even worse on political forums, if you dont parrot the forums groupthink, be it right leaning or left leaning you are assaulted by the majority and you end up getting labeled troll, even if your responses are level headed and you are the one being attacked

I wish we could get beyond that politically as a country. It's cool that we can have elections and power transitions without violence, but it would be cool if we could get to the next step of not thinking the opposite party is the enemy.
