There are languages I refuse to use for fear of picking up bad habits.

Perl is one. Python* is another. And then there's BASIC Unsure | :~

I'd add assembly to the list except there are unfortunately, rare instances where I need it.

*Python isn't as bad an offender as the others, but its array handling and use of significant whitespace are deal breakers for me.

I don't like to holy roll. Sure I have my favorite languages (C++, C#) and languages I hate but grudgingly accept (like Javascript), and ones that just aren't my cup of tea but I'll use them if I must (Java). Still, I try to be fair, and I believe that most languages have their niche. Even Perl, if I'm being generous, but that doesn't mean I'll use it and it doesn't mean I don't think there should be a better alternative.

The ones I listed up top though - Nope. Just no. I will not use them, except perhaps to port something away from them.

I have to have some sort of standards.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm being overly picky though.
Real programmers use butterflies

Straw Poll

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
