I could link again to Mark-Jason Dominus, who writes that
people often make the following inference:

1) C is strongly typed.
2) C's typing sucks.
3) Hence strong typing sucks.

But I won't.

It doesn't need to be a religious war. Why can't people just
say "When strong typing is done and used well, it's a
useful tool; when it's not, it's not"?
