In _your_ very obviously biased opinion.

How can you "_detest_" (your emphasis) a language's syntax but like the
language? They're inseparable, bub.
Considering that you're the one who's ranting for paragraphs and
paragraphs about C, it's pretty clear that you have a bee in your bonnet
Don't like C's syntax? Don't use it. Hate its syntax but use it
anyway? Live in your own private hell. Hate its syntax but like it?
By all means, continue making no sense.
