I like that first article you linked πŸ‘

This stuck out to me:

This means that you can do things like send messages to objects written in different languages, transmit object definitions by mail, send messages via SMS, etc. In my opinion this is where a lot of the power of β€œmessage-passing” lies, but it’s also one of the least explored aspects.

I would agree that it's a messy topic. OOP gets a bad wrap for easily producing messy code. In my experience, using messaging patterns and isolating code properly can avoid this.

There is such a thing as messy and hard-to-understand FP code too πŸ™ƒ
There is messy OOP code too.

There is well-structured FP. And well-structured OOP.

I enjoyed your article for pointing this out πŸ‘Œ
