Instead what I'd like to claim is that Java is not, generally, a hard enough programming language that it can be used to discriminate between great programmers and mediocre programmers.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a well, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - Robert Heinlein

I don't find it strange at all, rather, entirely able to be explained without contradiction whatsoever. But I'll leave that for now
You must remember, I once worked with Java, even on the Java implementation itself. I understand the religion better than many of its fanatics - this too, is capable of being explained.
I can't renounce my name. It's on all my stationery! And hinted in this tiny ad:
