Hello! I'm a designer and front-end developer, and former unixy-type sysadmin. In my spare time I like to prepare for the rising of dread Cthulhu.

@Cornucopia, +1 for being a model SO user.

I still think that for a rounded education, you should appreciate the difference between "native" JS and what's provided by jQuery. Still too many people think that $ is a reserved word in JS.

@webbiedave If only that were true. There'd be a lot less noise on SO.

comment What would you do if your client required you not to use object-oriented programming?
@DonalFellows Absolutely, it's a good point that the two are not at all mutually exclusive. Python (because the question was originally tagged Python) is imperative, object oriented, and functional, depending where you stand when you look at it. And elsewhere on this page someone mentions OCaml, which is OO and functional.

comment Why can we delete some built-in properties of global object?
It's a bad idea to modify third-party libraries because then you can't upgrade them without copying over all your changes.

Because the next thing that happens is JSON2.js gets loaded, which detects the presence of JSON.stringify and injects it if necessary. Apologies, I didn't explain that in my answer.
