I think that this is what he meant. If he uses IRB, then the syntax error comes up like: 
~~~ ruby
SyntaxError: (irb):14: syntax error, unexpected '?', expecting ')'
	from /Users/antonionesic/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/bin/irb:11:in `<main>'
~~~
But I have to agree. This is a SyntaxError, and not a bug. 
Ticket should be closed.
