But why would anecdotal accounts be of interest... unless there's
an agenda :)  Differing skill levels and problem scenarios would
tangle the results so much no one could ever unravel the skein or
pry out any meaningful conclusions.  I'm not sure what's to be gained 
...even if you're just evaluating your own experiences. And, as you
suspect, it almost certainly would devolve into a pissing contest.

This subject thread  may be of great interest but I think an language 
advocacy mailing  list would be a better forum.
