Not disagreeing with you, but have you ever tried both C++ and Rust? You shouldn't call recommending Rust over C++ brainwashing unless you know both languages, really.
Yes, I tried both the languages. Rust is too early to call for this much level of preaching that it gets on stackoverflow. Same with Go lang. It's the fanboyish approach I hate because people are using those surveys as if it's reality, which it's not.
I certainly would not recommend using Rust in all situations, but maturing the language will only improve as more and more people start to use it.

We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
