Developer of V here.
Can you please explain how V is a scam or which claims are untrue or misleading?
The post you referenced is untrue and misleading.
It claims that V doesn't do over 90% of what's advertised and that it's impossible to write anything more complex than Fibonacci. While in fact V itself is written 100% in V: github.com/vlang/v
and so is the Vid editor: github.com/vlang/vid
(which, according to the author of this post, can not be done).
Then there are ridiculous claims like json decoding not being possible without AST.
V is built in V and compiles itself in under 1 second. I think it's pretty impressive for a language that has just been open sourced.
Here's part of DOOM translated from C to V:
All claims on the home page are true, features that are still WIP are marked so.
