Wikipedia talk page comment of the day

"DLL fanboys

I wrote a section called the "case against DLLs" because virtually all of the dynamic linking articles written in Wikipedia were written by DLL fanboys. The subject is NOT pat, and deserves a counterpoint, which I have written thoughtfully. I have done so before, and the result was having the section clipped out and thrown away. So here is my simple plea: are we presenting all points of view here, or do the fans of one technique or another get to suppress everyone else's viewpoint? DLLs have introduced a lot of unnecessary problems in computing and deserve at least the simple short section I have added, which contains facts and historical background not present in the rest of the article."

Ah, it's those 'DLL fanboys' suppressing your views. Perhaps I should get a T-shirt saying 'DLL fanboy'.
