On Unsubstantiated Claims of Technical Superiority

October 8, 2008

From the Django Book, chapter 3:

… one of Django’s core philosophies is that URLs should be beautiful. The URL /time/plus/3/ is far cleaner, simpler, more readable, easier to recite to somebody aloud and … just plain prettier than its query string counterpart. Pretty URLs are a sign of a quality Web application.

(Emphasis added)

The Little Computer Scientist says: “No Longer Acceptable! Unacceptable!”
