Paul Jansen is TIOBE’s Management Director, and he responded to my post yesterday about the ColdFusion being taken off the TIOBE Programming Index. Here is his message:
Thanks for your reply on our TIOBE index. I have added an extra question called “Who is Richard Bremner?” to the FAQ of the TIOBE index (see the end of the page). I hope that this answers your question.
Paul, thank you for responding. I still believe that you made a mistake, both in removing ColdFusion from the index, and trusting the input of a single individual and not making the effort to check the facts for yourself. However, I do appreciate you responding to the reactions and feedback of the ColdFusion community.
