    Lessons in Vagueness

    We all know that VBF is a rich source of technical programming knowledge but often overlooked is the wealth of talent that we have in the lost art of being incredibly vague an undescriptive.

    Every day, the modest masters of this discipline post endless masterpieces, the likes of which I could not do justice here.

    These wraithlike geniuses are able to deftly strip out all useful and salient details from a post and leave remaining all the incorrectly spelled varible names and comments written in foreign languages. It takes dedication and study to achieve such a high level of competence in this field.

    We who are about to code, salute you.

    What I read:

    We all know VBF is a rich overcooked lost art.

    Every day, masterless pieces of justice...

    These are able to strip and leave comments..,

    We about to code, you...

    A masterful summation of the inevitable presence of the grammatically disinclined and the mentally stagnant around the floor of coding.

    Well done that man!

    I just saw ' . . master . . .' and I couldn't help but associate the obvious w**ker sensibilities.

    Hey My w**ker has more sensibilities in its code plese?
    "And most of the evils of society can, in fact, be cured through information. We have a society that has been disinformed and based on the disinformation has made irrational choices. And that's what I mean by 'ignorance.' People, who ordinarily might be smart, are deprived of the data by which to make a rational decision, don't have the data to do it."
