But only by immature C-assholes who are frightened of being taken for
unprofessional. In every field there are a bunch who want all hobbyists
to give up trying to make anything work for themselves so they'll break
down and hire them, because THEY KNOW that's the only way they'll EVER
Those who religiously seek to dissuade people from BASIC so that they
will be demoralized by C and give up trying ANYTHING simple and fun
JUST so these sad fucks can get hired to do this trivial crap are such
sad vicious ignorant people.
