programming languagesShort Bytes: There are few programming languages that are hated by many. But, a crazy person took his hate to the next level and submitted a petition in the “We the People” section of the White House website to kill JavaScript, Java, and Ruby programming languages.

According to a petition that sought your signatures, there are some programming languages that threaten the safety of the American people and are harmful to your life. This petition was submitted in none other than “We the People” section of the White House website.

This petition made its way to the website on March 16, 2016, and asked the government to “outlaw” some threatening programming languages. The petitioner even took the pain to list those evil programming languages and ban them.

So, if you are wondering which programming languages are a risk to the lives of American people, let me tell you — they are JavaScript, Ruby, and Java.

Yes, these “tools” represent a high risk to the safety of America’s critical infrastructure. The petitioner even goes ahead and calls these programming languages a “low hanging fruit” whose use should be limited.

This could also remind you of the Linux creator Linus Torvalds’ harsh views towards C++ programming language.

While it’s possible to write bad code and create applications in any programming language, it’s surprising to note that someone wants to entirely ban three popular programming languages.

Meanwhile, you can sit back and relax as this petition is now closed because it didn’t meet the signature requirements.
