He was responding to a statement from you about "real programming" -- that was definitely a topic you raised first. So the question is what qualifies YOUR opinion any more or less than Cornstalks'?
Hogman: Cornstalks made the statement about "real programming" and I merely responded. He said: "real programming concepts have little to do with assembly and machine code". So, I asked what authority he has to say "real programming" is? Understand? =)
You stated an opinion, and he stated an alternative point of view. It seems odd that you consider your opinion automatically more valid?
We're getting a little off the original topic though...
