Congratulations I can see you have googling up. If you look a little further down in his quoted you should read a couple descriptions of people like you (you know OO and VB crowd)...
See how the moron slowly diverts the subject to etymology. That is the proof that his basic claim was simply nonsense.

The idiot does not make the difference between paraphrazing Dijkra and quoting Dijkra. That's a subtleness that elludes weak and unprecise minds. Note the futile attempt to divert the subject slowly to etymology.

Come to think about it using Pfff to express myself in a language you may understand seems to be too complex for you. I have a small red fish with which you will certainly more suitable to converse with you.
