I mean specifically bad as in poorly designed.

Not all syntax is created equal despite your implication to the contrary.

Significant whitespace is nonsense, for example, both from a parsing standpoint, and from a usability standpoint. Technically speaking it's Broken As Designed.

Same with things that cannot easily be remembered by way mnemonic or anything like that. Make is littered with that.

Just like code can be readable and unreadable, so can syntax. A grammar can be well designed, or it can be designed poorly.

C# is an example of a well designed grammar. Make is an example of a poorly designed grammar.

It is what it is.
Real programmers use butterflies
