To be fair, I was unaware that you were behind Nim and I always 
though you were a reasonable person.

That is also not a comment about Nim, of which I know very 
little, but the communication around Nim. When I say the 
engineering department remains to be found, that is almost meant 
literally: I never hear of engineering decisions around Nim. I 
can't even say they are bad, i literally never hear of them.

Which is weird, because I hear about Nim all the time. But every 
time, this is some grandiloquent speech with very little actual 

You know what i think about targeting C. Now, this may be a good 
solution to get something bootstrapped fast, but this isn't 
something that should be promoted as an advantage or worse, 
something that is part of what the language is.

You guys have a PR problem.
