And there were many answers that displeased you, because they were
insufficiently kowtowing to your anterior intellect. As the computer (and
therefore the programming language) is an interpreter of strict rules, it
is the user who must conform to the language when it comes to programming
languages. Certain improvements may be suggested, but the creator of the
programming language may consider such improvement requests to be
inadvisable, laughable, or simply incorrect. Or they might consider them
useful and accept them.
You will never know this, because you are on the users list (the discussion
list) and not submitting your so-called "bug" reports to the core list or
bug tracker (same thing). Let’s be clear: every single thing you’ve called
a bug for the time that you have been trolling the users list would have
been closed as "WONTFIX BY DESIGN". Or maybe it would have been "use a
modern version of Ruby and then ask us again".
Ruby 2.6 is EOL. No bug report for anything less than Ruby 2.7 would be
accepted, and Ruby 2.7 is about 6 months or so from only accepting security
Ruby is actively used used by tens of thousands of people who are not Die
Falscheptimisten, and while many of them do have struggles with the way
that Ruby works, few of them report everything that doesn’t work like C or
Bash or some other language that IS NOT RUBY as if it were a bug. Almost
none of them invoke nonsense like "long and short options should do the
same thing, or it’s not the Unix way" (long options are a GNUsystem
innovation, and most Golang programs use long options with *single* dashes
by convention, which I think is a plan9-ism).
Which is to say that none of them are Der Arrogant, that is to say, you.
I will kindly ask you to put up (start filing your nonsense "bugs" on
ruby-talk to see what the *official* responses are) or shut up and go away
unless you’re going to be serious about learning Ruby as its own language
and stop pretending that just because it doesn’t work the way that *you*
think it should work that there’s a bug.
-a (now go away, or I shall taunt you a further time)

We had that question already:
Should the user conform to the language, or the language to the user?
