I think that the problem stems from people frequently using exceptions 
incorrectly, and many of the C++ programmers probably haven't _ever_ seen them 
used correctly, since I don't think that it's very common for C++ programs to 
define exception hierarchies - especially not advanced ones like Java has. And 
when you see a lot of bad exception code, that tends to turn you off to them, 
and it definitely doesn't show you how to use them correctly.
