I appreciate the article and the care you obviously took in writing it. I can't imagine how anyone who read it fully with an open mind could call it a rant or a troll. You carefully explained yourself in more detail than most addressing 'myths' of thinking and you explained why you thought each was a myth.
While I'm not a full-time coder, I'm helping on one open source project leading a small team. What you've written has given me some good areas for thought and improvement. Thanks, jeff wilkinson
