If Go community is what they believe they are - intelligent. They would not blame D community for this article, but the person who wrote it. - It is not tagged "Opinion" for no reason !!

My personal opinion about the article - people may hate D equally for being "too pragmatic". That `source.byLine.join.to!(string);` line for example, takes much longer time to understand than 20 lines of Go code. Any D newbie with knowledge of some modern language will struggle understanding (and being 100% sure that he/she understands!) that line of D code.

I could give a big list of things where Go has advantage over D. What I found pathetic is that Go community used list of established open-source projects done in Go. :) But OK, we expected that, did we?
