in thread My greatest coding sin is:

In my professional work, I've seen this particular sin most often in the form of "refusal to use floating point (due to lack of proper understanding of the limitations leading to a fear or dread or just undue reluctance to use floating point in so many situations where it would be better than some integer, usually in a poor choice of units)".
