Programming languages which I dont like!!!!!!!!

The popularization of the Scala programming language, noticeable by the abundance of opinions and criticism on blogs and social networks (like this one by Nikita Ivanov from GridGain and the popular Yammer case), greatly increased the amount of information about the language. However, the quality of such information often leaves much to be desired.
Whether those opinions are favorable or contrary to the Scala, they often contain outdated, superficial or biased statements. The goal of this article is to help those learning or evaluating Scala to come into their own conclusions. It presents the most common questions about language and its environment and, for each one, added clarifications, examples and links, favoring the formation of a better opinion or a more accurate assessment.
Scala is a compiled language, designed to run on a managed environment, most likely the JVM, and offers the union of the functional and object-oriented paradigms. Scala offers functional and object-oriented programming, a modern compiler and a type system checked at compile time, as in Java, but with the expressive syntax of (usually) interpreted languages, such as Groovy or Ruby. However, the same features that makes Scala expressive can also lead to performance problems and complexity.
