I never knew about that one.
I want a Visual Studio add-in or extension that adds an arsenal of weapons you can use to shoot, burn, bomb, and nuke bad code. Each weapon would destroy a different amount of code (gun shoots an identifier, flamethrower burns a line, bomb blows up a method, nuke annihilates a class, etc). Of course it should have vivid animations.
How so many businesses, so many business people, accountants, sales people, executives, can still not get this simple concept and be so resistant to the idea
There's no reason for any of those people to understand the technical details, nor why they matter. From their perspective, any explanation of why a WTF of this caliber is a Really Bad Thing is only going to sound like you're trying to fleece them, and hey, they're just not gullible enough to fall for that one. Perhaps TRWTF is their legal department.

I can't shake the unsettling feeling that "[code]salary ASC[/code]" is the result of wishing to convey "increase your salary by taking a job with us!" and losing something in the translation.

It's Lorne Kates. Of course it's satire.
