You are just sounding like a troll now...
That makes no sense:
"I assume that there are some special tasks D can do, while
Python can't do"
"Take Python as in example, the same program in Python doesn't
cost much code as D code"
What same program are you talking about? Why did you mention
python as if you showed me an example I can see?
What am I supposed to say if can't even explain or show an
example of how D is more verbose?
