Quoting from his blog post:

"While it’s technically an AS3->JS converter there are several issues with
FlexJS, the biggest of which is that it’s designed around the Flex SDK and
is still in alpha. Flex also implies the Flash Player, and I think this is
a turn off to many JavaScript developers. Why not let the AS3 language work
independently from the Flash/Flex platform?"

He says there are "several issues" but fails to substantiate the claim.  He
picks a strawman and says that it is designed around the Flex SDK as if
that is a problem.  Then goes on to talk about Flex.

The whole argument is constructed around an attempt to plant doubts about
FlexJS as a way to convince people to use his framework instead.  He is
either completely ignorant of FlexJS or is willfully misrepresenting it.

Anything more on this topic,  I'd like to take it to private@, please.
