Related, every time I touch Ruby I have to look everything up, even trivial things like "how to write a comment", and I always go through these stages:

1/ Huh, that's neat.
2/ Huh, that's... different.
3/ That's.... what?
4/ WHY????

And people talk shit about PHP...

@saramg Ruby and I don't get along either.

I was looking at your earlier link wondering if I could hack my idea into something real. But, based on past Ruby experience, I decided not to spend more time on it right now. At least I know where to look if I want to pick this up later. :)

Also interesting to note: once verified, always verified?

@beausimensen I haven't tried, but I expect this flow runs on profile save, so if you remove the link then add it again it.... should? not persist?

@saramg I like Ruby a lot, but I know I'm weird lol! It's a very expressive language and you can do pretty much anything you want, so it's basically PERL from a mirror universe. I also understand why people don't like it though

@fabio Oh sure, I realize my reactions are all very much based in my experiences in other languages. If I lived and breathed Ruby on the regular, I'd probably have very different feelings.

@saramg For sure! Even Javascript can be cool sometimes (not React though, I have PTSD from working with React - especially with Redux)
