Friday 2006-10-27 WTF, Foxpro disappeard



  • Out of curiosity, what happened to the daily WTF article from Friday.

    It seems to have been erased?



  • The article was retracted for professional reasons. It's easy to forget that the “Real World” and the “Internet World” intersect, and that presenting a one-sided story on the 'net without a cloak of anonymity does have Real World consequences. Especially for a self-employed consultant in a small city. I chose to retract the article and can only hope that the bridges I did set on fire didn't burn all the way down ...



  • Understood.

    Best of luck to you.

     I'd be willing that the bridges were already on fire, but everyone failed to notice until the article was posted... lol ;-P

    That's about the only reason why I don't post 3 WTFs on average per day.



  • Well, you know what they say: if you're going to burn your bridges, make sure they're well-done, 'cause some day you might have to eat them.

     Wait...

    Well, better luck next time...

  • Yeah, that's fair enough ... I was slightly surprised to see a WTF that was openly from you in the first place. You can still 'submit' WTFs, though, right, as long as you don't say 'It's from me, guys' ;)? I'm sure you have some great WTFs to share.

    I don't think it's too much of a disaster to have this one pulled, it was an OK WTF but nothing spectacular. (Obligatory demand for code-based WTFs goes here.)
