Oh, I certainly agree. And I think your articles were very well written
(definitely something both traditional procedural programmers as well
as 'mindless OOP zombies' should read). But I do think people should be
know that OOP certainly isn't the right answer for everything; it works
great in alot of situations, and terrible in others.
I didn't want you to get the impression that I thought you were wrong in
any of your articles, though. I thought they were fantastic. I just
didn't want you to think that since some of us have argued against OOP
in certain situations in the past that we didn't understand OOP.
