Well, to be honest, I also feel it goes that way:

"Javascript was not designed to do X"
"Do X with it"

Which is not that bad considering the benefit of bekng inside the webbrowser, but when we go around with:
"We want to do a game executable for one specific platform"
"Javascript is not specific to a platform, browsers are translating it in the end to the platform"
"I know! Let's get a browser, hide it from people, and use it to interpret the javascript we have done so it looks like an exe!"
"...what the point already?"
"It is cooler that way, and we can export to multiple platforms!"
"...you could either just stay with a webgame which will keep the benefits, or simply use a technology that is low level enough while being crossplatform which won't have problems"
"Nah, I prefer misusing mah toolz"

I just cannot say it is a good thing, we are using a webtech, trying to make it as polish as native, then making it look like native while losing the web benefits, dafudge.
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

So the hierarchy is: blame the software, the compiler, then the language, and failing that blame the hardware.
Wont be long till we blame Moore for not getting anything done.

In most cases C2 is sufficient. But it is not magic, you still need to think algorithms and resources.

haha... the one about protoType being "pants on head stupid" was priceless... I cringe every time I have to work on someone else's code that uses it.
