in reply to Stubborn as a Saint

It was about time somebody said it %^)

In one of my recent posts, I took an interest and tested some code somebody wrote up, and much to my suprise, it did not work, and this was a craft. After some tinkering, I noticed somewhat of a logic error. I was baffled. This was a good guy, a good monk, and a good coder(as far as I can tell), and nobody called him on it. Not only that, it was one of those days with the newest nodes page with a 100+ entries. Maybe my tinkering is what caused the problem, but I spoke up. I fear it is far too common an occurance, that we overlook things like that.

So, I urge everybody and anybody, be you Anonymous, or initiate, check out the code you read/write/vote on carefully, and call people on it. You'd be doing everybody a favor, and more importantly, you'd sharpen your skills(which is what most people come around here for, that and the company %^).

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
