If I were to magically become a decent typist, I'd probably agree with you.
But given my current typing accuracy level, I need the crutch of
spellcheckers in documents, and the equivalent of spellchecking in my
scripting. So I personally need the help that I can get from declaring
variables (and setting the switch in the IDE to always require variables
to be declared).
The issue isn't the paradigm - it's the typong ...
(yes, I did mean typong :-)
