Either way I don't think that answers Paul's question.  Half of the
things in the list apply to C as well, and the validity of the entire
list is debatable.  C++ is a very thoroughly designed language.  The
reasoning behind most of the design decisions that went into the
language can be found in the book "The Design and Evolution of C++".

P.S. That site seems to be a response to this (very useful) C++ site:
