those quotes are there for a reason. Its not to be taken 
literally. Real explanation would take too much typing. Also did 
you watch the CCP grey video in my post?

You mean languages with smaller scope and bigger resources? Like 
kotlin or rust? They both have lower scope than D and more 
resources. The closes to D in terms of scope and resources is nim 
and its rough on edges too. I would argue even more rough than D. 
So what D and nim have in common? Lack of resources.

In that post I treated you as human. Human that is just like me 
and billions of others. When you look at human brain close enough 
you will find strange thing.

I dont know how you can look at $1605 per month and say "yeah you 
can hire loads of high skilled developers to do awesome job". (im 
exaggerating to make a point)

Look at that number as long as you need until you get it. I have 
80-90% agreement with what is wrong with D but I dont act like 
you. That number is a reason.

P.s. If you want people to think of you as reasonable person dont 
compare non-profit open source project to for profit organization.
