Dear Ali,

It was an (unsuccessful is seems) attempt to continue this funny thread
with an RDF format that no one uses anymore and, the ones that have to,
most probably don't write it by hand.

Dmitris,

Sarven was making commentary on asinine debates (see Java vs JS)
programmers can get into, referencing a joke from an American comedy called
Silicon Valley (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silicon_Valley_(TV_
series)#Other_reactions - see last paragraph of that section).

It's been fun (and unfortunately validating) seeing it taken as a
semi-serious question!
