When I first read this I stopped and thought "wow - he's right. we did it 
wrong all the time".

But then I asked myself 2 questions:
When do we talk about "Programming" instead of "Developing"?
When we do it, why do we do it?

Answer to 1: In most discussions on this mailing list
Answer to 2: Because someone asked a programming question

There also is a certain slant towards "Programming" in the "general" 
discussions, so you still are right. But I think it's not as bad as you 
described it :)
