The Irrational fear of JavaScript “Script Kiddies”

Over the last several months, I’ve seen a lot of whining, complaining a fear regarding Angular 2 in particular and the JavaScript platform in general.

Terms like “JavaScript fatigue” are indicative of the attitude.

Another place I see this is with the recent announcement from the Angular team stating there will be another major point release every six months.  Like this is a bad thing?

Or the general attitude that particular (modern) design decisions that have been made in some of the more recent frameworks that have been released are bad for JavaScript.

And I look at that and honestly wonder why these people are programming in the first place.  If change bothers you, you are really in the wrong industry.
