Also, I'd never say "SHOULD". Say "MUST", so first of all there is no doubt: "Use strict! No exceptions.
And I was just going to commend Abigail for using SHOULD for a lot of the guidelines.

They are guidelines after all - and there are situations where this or that rule is not appropriate. The programmer should not have to go through hoops to code around the limitation imposed by the rule (but should provide appropriate reasoning why the rule should not be applied).

[james28909]: was downvoted and left without a reply. go figure
[holli]: but then you DO give a fuck
[1nickt]: I don;t think beliefs should be down-voted, just behaviours.

[james28909]: some kind of logic behind it

[holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
[erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
[james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
[james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
