Jeff Atwood On TheDailyWTF

If you haven't already read it, check out Jeff Atwood's post on thedailywtf.com. I think it's a great post. I also think the comments people have been leaving are a bunch of crap.

I've decided to no longer visit thedailywtf.com after seeing what kind of a community sets up shop there. For me, the site has boiled down to a place where you can simply make fun of other people. Jeff's point is that we all make mistakes, so laughing at bad code should be done in good taste because we are essentially laughing at ourselves.

Laughing at bad code is well and good, I know I've done it - but Jeff's right, when you take the attitude that you've got it down pat and all the rest don't...well...there's something wrong with that picture.

The community over there doesn't want to hear that kind of talk. And that's a shame.
