You should really learn to use a different tone of voice. Your way of communicating doesn’t avoid thoughtless opinions, it simply avoids you.
Voting is just a way to get some attention to the issue. It doesn’t have any decisive meaning. Arguments are needed for language features, both opposing and proposing. And that’s what people in this thread trying to do: getting the arguments out there for why this is both a good and a bad proposal. Maybe there are some arguments that the guys and girls at Jetbrains have overlooked. So don’t be offended if someone doesn’t blindly accepts your position, it doesn’t even mean that someone disagrees with you. So it’s not at all about convincing people.
So about the topic of arguments you make a fair point that other mainstream languages have this feature, so I most certainly agree that it can help adaptation of Kotlin as it will be a familiar construct for developers. However familiarity is not something that may be a decisive argument. There was a time when every language had a
goto statement and was considered a necessary construct. Now we can do without.
