Ok. Let's do some voting.

I extended pool with latest syntax suggestion. I also added additional 
pool about omissible parenthesis feature.

It is ridiculous, particularly in light of the fact that no poll shows the landslide prevalence of "everybody". Andrei

Not everyone may agree, or understand. But if you look at it objectively, D's 'properties' cause inconsistencies, ambiguities and limitations. I'm not listing them again, since it doesn't seem to have any effect. I fully understand that the simple rewriting rules currently used were by far the easiest way to get properties into D. No extra syntax or anything. Walter probably only needed a day or two to put them into the compiler. Not much thought had to go into it. This is evident by the fact that +=, ++, etc. don't work. And then you could advertise that D had properties. Then some people started to abuse property syntax to save three keystrokes (one for the shift-key). So now all of a sudden, real properties can't ever work for D, since you'd lose your no-parentheses function-calls, and some backwards compatibility. But it is a flawed design. Many people have tried to explain this to you. But when faced with the facts, both you and Walter avoid the issue. You focus on minor mistakes in peoples posts and then ignore their real message. And often you simply never reply. Take, for example: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/Reddit_why_aren_t_people_using_D_93528.html#N93753 I don't think D will soon adopt the kind of properties some of us have been advocating. You'll just treat the symptoms, I expect. This post is not meant to convince you. It simply needed to be said. I apologize for my confrontational tone. -- Michiel Helvensteijn

That's because we can't see who is voting and if anyone is cheating.

Trivial cheating is rather not possible - there is only one voice per IP. BR Marcin Kuszczak (aarti_pl)

Interesting. I can't tell because it seems like I can still submit after voting, but I don't want to test it for fear of double-voting.

You can't vote with the same IP, but with another one. Anyway, the poll doesn't present enough options IMO.
