Fads are generally things that are significantly popular for at least 
some duration greater than Planck time.

D has its band of Robin Hood(s) and Many Merry (Wo)Men, and though it 
has existed for significantly longer than Planck time it can hardly be 
said that D has at any instant been significantly popular.  This is not 
a comment on the worth of D as a programming language; simply an 
observation that D does not meet the definition of a fad by any stretch.
