People, are you crazy, with my deepest respect and friendliness...
You want to frighten newbies? it seems that they have already a good dose
of allergy... 

Some of them may *really* believe in that IRC citation, that Haskell is
bad since it makes people hate other languages. 

Actually, Haskell encouraged me to look more profoundly into other languages
such as Parsertongue,
and, well, you know better than myself that a good wizard is morally not
allowed to hate Muggles. Unless they become a nuisance. And a good wizard
is sweet as a lamb, and Unforgivable Spells like "Monado!" are to be used
only when unavoidable. 

Please be kind and cheerful. Don't attept to say to innocent that what
is on this picture
are Dark Marks...
