General Development "Since I left my job at Amazon I have spent a lot of time reading great source code. Having exhausted the insanely good idSoftware pool, the next thing to read was one of the greatest game of all time: Duke Nukem 3D and the engine powering it named 'Build'. It turned out to be a difficult experience: The engine delivered great value and ranked high in terms of speed, stability and memory consumption but my enthousiasm met a source code controversial in terms of organization, best practices and comments/documentation. This reading session taught me a lot about code legacy and what helps a software live long." Hail to the king, baby.

"Umm... What are you rambling about? If telling you directly I wasn't calling you out specifically doesn't soothe your butthurt then I guess your confidence really is shot and the shoe fits. Unfortunately lashing out won't solve either of those problems."

You're still doing it, it's totally immature, but then you already know that and it was your intention all along. Grow up. I try to take the discussions seriously and here you are continuing to fling insults without cause. I've been more patient than you deserve; it's just very disappointing to have this caliper of discussion on osnews. Obviously your just going to reply with more unprovoked insults, it's totally lame.

If you took discussions seriously then you would make more of an effort to pay attention to detail and is actually being said. You wouldn't intentionally misquote or misrepresent what has been said. Being deceitful is not how to have good debate. You claim I'm naive, then immediately agree with me. You put on a display after a general comment hits too close to home for you (I guess), and after being told it wasn't directed at you specifically, you put on an even bigger display. You're guilty of all this and more, but pretend you haven't provoked anything.

Your deceitfulness and erratic behavior is what's disappointing because you don't seem to be an idiot. Then again it gets you more attention than you would get otherwise, which may have been your issue all along -- a need for attention. Go ahead making false claims and lashing out. Sadly it's what I've come to expect from you.

I haven't lashed out or deceived, unless you consider my pointing out your insults to be lashing out.

It almost seems like the logic you've been using would be used by an offshore development company against a disappointed client: "What do you mean our code is crap? How can it be crap if it does what it is supposed to? Hmm? Maybe 'you' are too inexperienced to read it...if the shoe fits..." ;)
