The article you reference was parody with a bit a truth thrown in.

Yes, you are right. My worry relies on the fact that the new comers, and also the veterans who aren't so close toJavaScript, could be seeing this big wave of "fatigue" articles related to JavaScript and thinking that everything that could be done with JS would end up being an stressful and messy job, while it is not the truth. Another person told through the comments here, a case of someone that was initially interested in learning Node.js and then he felt the need to stop and ask if this is the whole truth about JavaScript. This is the bad side effect of these mistakenly entitled articles.
