Actually, I agree with Marietta. I don't care whatsoever about mocking me, which was a certain element of it. I have thick skin and am confident in these conversations.
The part that was probably over the line was mocking children who learn to program or those who teach them. That's a huge and great job. I know I would not have the skill to teach children effectively. Adults with technical expertise are much easier for me. That said, thank you Mark for your empirical research with a test subject.
