As the former editor of ACM SIGPLAN (Special Interest Group on Programming
Languages) Notices, I have a license to make such comments. Since you
identify yourself as a `Dr.' in the Dept. of theoretical chemistry
defending the use of a standard from 1977 as though it were academically
respectible, you should also take care making unprofessional statements
on a public forum. It might be bad for your career.
