stop saying "systems language" when what you really mean is "c++-like"


i think i particularly dislike the term because ive been in a lot of discussions where its vagueness is used for endless goalpost-shifting

so whether or not you think your personal definition of the term is concrete and well founded, i dont wish to entertain it. if you have a specific domain in mind say that instead

this isnt a subpost im thinking of a specific discord im in where people are always having super unproductive arguments, and "X isnt a systems language because Y" comes up a lot
