in reply to Programmers Nostrums

My dictionary says

nostrum |ˈnɑstrəm| (noun)
* a medicine, esp. one that is not considered effective, prepared by an unqualified person.
a pet scheme or favorite remedy, esp. one for bringing about some social or political reform or improvement.
Programmers have plenty of meaningless rituals and political slogans; you should always question them.
