Why most of programmers of Rust and FP always sounds like a fucking cult?

Whenever you complain about something about their languages 68912 users appear out of blue to say that you didn't understand and attempt to convince you how amazing its language

@eletrotupi I had people pinging me on fedi or emailing me for months after I made this gemlog post dissing on rust: nytpu.com/gemlog/2021-04-13.gm.

The rust community is just the worst in general, I cannot stand their hubris to say “rewrite everything in rust.” I've never seen another programming language community where the majority unironically claims that their language is perfect for all use-cases and any dissent is objectively wrong.

@nytpu @eletrotupi the cargo cult never liked my observation of rust syntax as being the php of system programming... so yes, I too have committed crimes against rust, crimes far more serious it seems than what crimes rubocop would accuse me of doing against ruby kind.

@nytpu @eletrotupi good post! rust’s dependency situation is scarily similar to node’s (npm). “let’s just crowdsource the stdlib guys!”

@x @eletrotupi Some more of my adventures in rust: tilde.zone/@nytpu/105341010246, tilde.zone/@nytpu/106887854073. Plus a good post by Drew DeVault about it: drewdevault.com/2019/03/25/Rus.

I've been meaning to write a comprehensive treatise on all of my criticisms about the rust ecosystem but I've never gotten around to it.

@nytpu @eletrotupi thanks for the links. i’ve read drew’s post before.

i would be interested in reading this.

@nytpu @eletrotupi I get a feeling that there's been a huge influx of new programmers in the last few years and they just drank the kool aid about Rust because they literally don't know any better.

The one true language to future proof software development -- is Rust the new Java? 🤔
