I know hate speech is not allowed here. But... Can I just say I absolutely hate XML and it can go away and no one will miss it?

@bshah XML isn't that bad, now never get me started on XSL and XSD, that's the real horrors.

@bshah my rss feed would miss it - but I guess it could be replaced with json

@bshah chances are your tooling just sucks. i also had an avid dislike of xml, but xpath etc. really works well if the xml isn't structured shitty. which it probably is ;)

@bshah I like XML. I don't like how it is used most of the time.
