So the claims of people who have personally worked on "real world"
code that contains list comprehensions isn't valid, whereas you who
have _no_ such experience have a more genuine understanding of the
world? Which is somehow totally unbiased and yet somehow always agrees
with your preconceived notions?

Because clearly what the world needs is more of your style of academic
understanding over practical, pragmatic knowledge. And arrogant
condescension...we sure can't get enough of that.
