Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

While sometimes questions of the form "Why does language X [not] have feature Y" get voted over the top... Example: – Henk Holterman Jun 29 '11 at 20:16

Well, you've used subjective and argumentative language to describe features of a product and asked for the design rationale that Oracle engineers used in the creation. This question is off-topic for StackOverflow and belongs on Ask Tom.
