Well, you're right, of course. A more polite form would be
perfectly in order. Grammatically, though, this could be
elegantly solved by inserting a comma after 'other', I be-

"... than any other, bastardized version of (so-called)
object-oriented scripted languages."

Of course, I am not insisting on this solution... ;-)
