in thread Reinventing the wheel
Even more annoying to their fellow mechanics is when someone re-implements a wheel, then loudly proclaims that their wheel is "TEH BEST WHEEL EVAR!!1!11" and everyone else should immediately switch to using their wheel and that anyone who points out that this new wheel has only been tested on a 1957 MG midget, at 25 MPH, falls off randomly and requires buying a whole new set of tools to change the tires is met with "YOU AR TEH SUCK, FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO REPRE#SS, YOU ELETIST SNOB!!!". It may actually even be better, but without compelling evidence, few people are likely to switch.
That’s really stretching. You’d be hard-pressed to find any sort of real world example of that. In Perl. Around here. Lately. Relentlessly.
