We are talking in circles here. Your quote is saying nothing of relevance. The ability to furnish a function with properties and methods that operate upon them does not matter at all.
Let me make this really clear.
You say: "methods [Functions] are not prime [first-class] citizens"
You are wrong.
We’re a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
