Block an annoying Javascript that affects Copy/Paste
Authored by: barefootguru on Jun 01, '10 04:28:04PM

Not at all. The word 'script' is already in the name so saying it again is redundant.

'I'm writing a JavaScript script' just sounds stupid.

And it's a capital 'S'.

JavaScript is not a single, definitive, tangible item. It's an adjective because it describes a type of code. You can have a JavaScript engine, JavaScript implementation, JavaScript error, and so on. "I have a Facebook" is patently wrong in the exact same way, since you can have a Facebook page, Facebook account, Facebook message. Just because a noun is included in the construction of a proper noun doesn't make nouns that follow redundant. "ATM machine" is redundant because "machine" as the noun appears in both the acronym and the construction, however JavaScript qualifies the noun of "script".
