It's not really that "stupid" of comment to make if you look at the development community in it's entirety rather than just the elite few.

Most developers are lazy and a disappointing few developer are good developers.

I've lost count of the number of times I've seen nasty kludges and even wrong languages chosen because developers couldn't be bothered to or didn't know how to do things properly.
