comment Why do we keep using CSV?
@GrandmasterB He's obviously frustrated, so I wanted to try to be non-confrontational in my answer. Instead of "you're wrong" it's "I'm not saying you're wrong, but let's look at the other side." The OP has some valid frustrations, even if they are somewhat misdirected. In any case, several others seem to agree that this isn't the best choice of wording, so I'll edit...

If you're just getting into the health domain and you think CSV is bad... just wait until you run into HL7!

+1 for rolling-their-own every time. I see developers who don't learn, not a flawed data format. :-)

comment What is programming like in the Japanese language?
Are those new features language-dependent? What's the difference versus just marketing a different feature-set in Tokyo than in Nagoya?

@Zeno - That's internationalizing character strings the user will see. That's important to do even if the code is by and for English-speakers. Comments & variable names & internal language aren't really correlated unless the code is going to be released as an API.
