Boy oh boy, I just love in every D thread how we get the "my language can do this too" arguments followed by everyone showing how they're not the same thing. Mostly we leave it to the C++ people to do that in reddit threads (followed by the C++ person posting some horrific macro and claiming victory), so it's nice to see the C# people get in on the action.

I just like a D post with 1166 upvotes! I think that's a record for us, but maybe one of Andrei's got more? And I do love that we coined the name "Voldemort Type" that has now entered the lexicon of programming jargon!

Curiously enough, almost the same post in 2012 only got 100 upvotes: https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/telhj/voldemort_types_in_d/
