Why is this a fiasco?

Why must Ruby be far more known than Python?

We here know it and like it. I'm sure if other people ask us our opinion 
on a good
language, we'll suggest Ruby.

But why should it matter if Ruby is more known than Python or Java or C 
or whatever?

If you like it, use it. If you don't, don't. One needn't worry so much 
about what other
people are doing.

After all, Ruby isn't a religion, and it isn't in a contest with other 
languages.
