Wadler's Law part 2

The original discussion about Walder's Law can be found here. There's a nice discussion about syntax and semantics between a couple of posters - there's a little misunderstanding which sparked this, but then it generated a superb comment (highlighed below).

This is of course absolute truth. On the other hand, I think syntax is important.

Semantics are more important.

I didn't compare the importance of syntax to the importance of semantics, I just noted that syntax is important, too.

Personally, I believe humans are unable to separate the two.
