We've never mocked Rust's safety features, although I have
posted that they are too complex for D and desire a simpler
"A disharmonic personality. Reading any amount of Rust code
evokes the joke 'friends don't let friends skip leg day' and
the comic imagery

If that's not mockery, then how would you describe it?
On my phone so can only speak from memory, but if it serves
then he went on to equally criticise D for its warts and
blemishes. It would be cherry-picking to ignore context and
just say that he threw mockery at rust.
Nothing has been taken out of context, so don't get it twisted.
In his post Andrei did cover the disadvantages of D, but his tone
was very different when talking about Rust and Go. And yes, he
was mocking Rust and even teasing Go for that matter.
Andrei's Quora post was mostly a PR stunt: when your competition
has a larger number of subscribers/users, you attack it in order
to steal the spotlight. I haven't seen this kind of behavior
from Rust or Go creators towards D.
