What's your opinion on type checking a language designed not to be type checked?

(Yes, JavaScript)

@celia TypeScript's been a major boon for me.

That said, JavaScript was not designed to be type checked, which is different from being designed not to be type checked.

As a comparison: it wasn't designed to be linted either, but a linter is still a very useful addition too. (I often argue that TypeScript is just an advanced linter.)
