— Only the ones you pass IO to?

— 

Man, you took one aspect of programming which is side effects, and started blaming everyone because of that

— In the same way, i can take another random aspect of programming

— Like performance

— And start blaming you because your js code is full of recursion

— Or i can take another, like static type safety, and blame you because js does not have static type safety

— It's completely pointless and a reductive point of view

— Performance is not a safety concern tho

— Ehh, two things solve this, though

— 1) We're in the process of adding it
2) It's mitigated by runtime checks

— That's not the point

— The point is that i cannot blame you about that
