When "logic" or "good sense" are writing programs, maybe then we'll
listen more to what they want in a language.

"Good sense" would dictate that someone actually read documentation
when dealing with a new programming language. "Logic" would indicate
that expecting things outside of your control to confirm with your
intuition is a fool's game; I highly recommend not reading up on any
modern physics as there'll be plenty there that just makes you angry.

PS pragmatism is a perfectly valid philosophical approach too. Far
more practical than more "pure" approaches, and something something
foolish consistency blah blah small minds.
