in thread Why a regex *really* isn't good enough for HTML and XML, even for "simple" tasks

I know. And like I said, your argument isn't going to convince a single one of them to stop. They will see their tasks as simple tasks and yours as complex, and you completely failed to show why regex shouldn't be used for simple tasks despite your claims.

I see your point now, and I guess that means your initial post could have been something along the lines of "I think your argument might be less effective because people will see their tasks as simple tasks and yours as complex, so how about adding an explanation why regexes still shouldn't be used?". Instead, you chose to be rude.

Update: Once again, the above quote represents the entirety of your node at the time I saw it and started composing my reply.
