Come on, what did you expect? Every one to applaud you? I have programmed in
C++ for over five years and in Java for the last year or two. I am a pretty
good Perl programmer too.  I am recently into python and beginning to
appreciate the language a lot; especially in relation to Java.  IMHO your
comment deserves the flames it got.
