(more frustration)

Ferd T-H was kind enough to perfectly voice one of my long standing frustrations with Clojure and it feels like many small programming communities and I couldn’t resist sharing.

A community of people fine with inadequate tooling/docs/attitude/etc overlooks those who avoided it for that reason. Survivorship bias? Then again, reframe the question as a trial by fire and dealing with less than ideal conditions becomes a badge of honor. Which in turns possibly only breeds more tolerance for entrenched inadequacy. You need fresh eyes to point out your slanted perspective.

My criticism of any “design for experts” philosophy may be inferred.
