Recursion is... dangerous (23 Oct 2005 at 20:26)
Actionscript is definitely the worst programming language I have ever used. Flash says:

256 levels of recursion were exceeded in one action list.
This is probably an infinite loop.
Further execution of actions has been disabled in this movie.


Egad! Who would ever use 256 levels of recursion?! Maybe someone who is, you know, implementing a recursive algorithm??

Go direct-style to jail. Do not pass continuation.

At least it has a really cool-sounding name.

Well, at least it's deterministic. Unless it isn't. In which case, nevermind.

Ugh, that makes me wonder how bad threads (would be/are) in this.

Yeah, it's deterministic, but makes certain totally reasonable programming styles impossible to use.
