Now, I would like to say how this ranking was conducted. Each person were to write a list of languages from 1-10 and give a description of why they chose that language in their list. The way we counted the points was the #1 on their list gets 10 points and the #2 gets 9 points and so on and so forth. If someone had for example 4 upvotes they would get +4 points on each language in their list. If someone had for example 4 downvotes then it would be -4 on each language in their list.
