Joke and emotion aside, I am interested in what makes programmers take
an opinion on topics like this. 

Could you describe what you like about the one syntax? 

Could you categorize your POV, perhaps one of: 

- I do like change
- I like foo() because:
- I like this.foo() because:
- I do not like foo() because:
- I do not like this.foo() because:

The idea being is this liking one solution vs. just disliking the
another solution, etc.

Thanks!
Gary
