Domain Specific Languages

Dave Thomas wrote an article on domain specific languages which echoes exactly what I've been thinking. I'm so glad someone is finally standing up against the syntactical travesties we're seeing in all manner of Ruby projects.

I for one, am all about a good domain model. No objection to DSL's as long as they act like a programming language. I've spent far too much time digging through reference manuals just to remember how to do something trivial that I would have memorized a long time ago in any other environment.

Hopefully the community takes note and stops this practice.
