15 Yeah, like it took me about two minutes of staring at the snippet to see
16 why it's evil when reading a short explanation would have made me see

19 After all not everyone reading this list is a code ninja, please just
20 stop this email pingpong and (like we do it with bugs) explain what is
21 the issue instead of letting people guess.
23 That might even teach those that are not yet super-gurus and is in
