apenwarr: have you taken into account:

1) that certain features (or lack of) in some compiled languages militate against reliability (and sometimes even performance)

2) that certain features of "scripting" or "interpreted" or "the other sort" of languages are actually designed to effectively aid reliability

I raise this not in order to settle the debate - which is clearly not a convergent debate as has been proven more times than there are seconds left in my lifespan - but in order to perhaps make you think for a moment. Your assertion is just a troll in a skimpy kimono.
