FULL DISCUSSION
 

I first heard the term when Rails first started gaining popularity and I was exposed to Ruby. I don't take it as something negative, to me it just means a language syntax feature that simplifies, it's not a different feature, just a different syntax. Like the "5.times do" syntax in Ruby, it can be done with a for or while loop just like in other languages.
