Let's scale back the imprecations a little bit.  Criticize errors, not
people.  For instance:


This article is ten years old and is out of date with respect to current
Java best practices.  Since Java 1.5, the preferred method is
ProcessBuilder, which was meant to replace most uses of Runtime.exec().

As a "real developer", I do this almost every workday.

You do not know whether the original poster was using this for a
deployment system, or as a prototype to explore the problem space.
Exploration, testing the limits of your knowledge, and discovering how
code works are all parts of the development process.
