Is this remotely accurate? I cannot find any sense in which this is
true.

Scout around www.python.org, and tell me who is the "single recognizable
voice" for those Python fucks. Who's the "spokesman" of the PSA? 

Who speaks for Javascript? 

Here's the Ruby who's who: http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/whos.html 
Tell me who's their PR manager. 

Point me at C's home page. 

Which of those guys on the PHP credits page is the spin doctor?

Which other languages were you thinking of, precisely?

We don't need a single guy telling the world how good Perl is. Play
our cards right, and we'll have a million of them.
