Jesus fuck where did it all go so wrong?
This is the difference between a toy script and setting up a significant project for many people to work on for years. Most languages would look like this - the only exceptions I can come up with are ones that are so oriented around large projects (Java, C#) that “hello world” would be more complicated, not the project being simpler.
(Also, please editorialize in comments rather than story texts.)
I don’t want to get extra karma on top of the submission. I also figure such comments are useful for setting the frame of mind for reading something.

That’s a bit… presumptuous. I’d rather have submissions be as neutral as possible without any editorialization. Either way, I’m not affected, as I tend to browse by first opening the submission link to one tab and then the comments in another, first reading the article and then the comments.
From the moment (using) the tools became the goal, rather than the means to accomplish the task at hand.
