That's ridiculous. There are so many exceptions that it does not even make sense to speak of 'rules'. And most rules a so fuzzy that they are no help at all. Best way to write is to learn each word like a vocable in a foreign language. Leave everyone alone who tries to tell you about 'rules', e.g. most teachers.

You might never use these for anything practical, but what you learn from them is invaluable. You need to constantly be learning new things.

In that case I would not learn such worthless stuff. Sorry, but 'you might never use these' is worthless in my book. When I feel the need to train my learning muscle it is stuff like OpenGL, video encoding, OpenMP. Stuff I can use and do with the languages I already know, but are new to me. Just learning a new programming language becomes sooner or later brainfuck. It is the illusion of doing something new, but without actually leaving ones comfort zone.

companies that allowed this kind of behavior would find them selves lacking in a very large section of the talent pool.

Oh, really? I constantly hear: Very few women in IT. Not enough women here, not enough women, so deep can this talent pool not be.

And every business will be better off, the fewer women are employed. No company needs female hate mongers, who pull the reputation of the company down to further her own agenda.

Did a single creepy and jilted co-worker (who aggressively professed his love) remove her code? Is there a data trail to prove this one way or the other?

Did you ever try to rewrite the git history so that really no trace of a commit can be found? Sounds interesting. I would like to know how this can be done.

Nondeterminism means never having to say you are wrong.
