General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script." Here's the other eleven.

Lots of these opinions are "controversial" because they are a load of hogwash.

I don't think there was any effort to actually filter out rubbish answers.

I think you could say that it is only programming if you don't use a compiler (or even assembler), and be equally (in)valid.
