I agree on what some people say; I see no point in trying to advertise
Let's avoid the same mistake as the linux community made; soon we'll
have an internal flame war about which monad is the best (linux
distribution flame-wars analog), arguing who's the most 31337 haxxor
and so on.
In my opinion, true elegance comes from being really good at something
without pushing it in the face of others. Let the log say "haskell -
it's elegant" without trying to be posh.

Patience is the last resort for those unable to take action
