comment Where have all the programming kids gone nowadays?
Thanks however for pointing out that the scope of Programmers.SE has changed. This kind of explains what happened here. I do however mind receiving an amout of downvotes comparable to some bad trolling/rants question ... this is surely not what's meant by enforcing good subjective questions (meta.programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/350). Closing is the right option if the question is not appropriate here ...

comment Where have all the programming kids gone nowadays?
Thank you Rachel, I know that there is probably not the answer to my question, nontheless there are many types of serious answers I could think of: "Statistic XY shows a decline by 45% in forum activity/site traffic for ... from 2007 to now", "Sales of .NET programming books increased by 300% in comparison to VBC", "Questions on forum XY shiftet ... from system to web programming languges by 85%". These I think would be valuable information to have

Wow, -4 on the question and no one bothers to explain what's wrong? That's embarrassing! Please point out why this isn't a constructive question in the sense of programmers.stackexchange.com/…

@Tjaart: Yes, I do not advocate VB as a first language at all, it was just to explain my background. So surely kids are doing different things; and I just wanted to know what these are.

Could downvoters please care to explain why? Also: I know this question is subjective, but if this isn't the appropriate place to ask, please name another? This isn't Stackoverflow after all

comment Why is every programming language “powerful”?
Powerful is a very subjective category. One might sometimes be able to agree on one core language being more powerful than another one. E.g. C++ vs. C or VB6 vs Scala. If one includes the different use-cases, things are complicated again - like comparing apples to bananas.
