I'm allergic to Unicode, you insensitive clod!

Now get your XML crap off my lawn.

You can have my ASCII when you pry my keyboard from my cold dead hands.

Seriously, are people that desperate to justify their jobs that they have to make up sh*t like this? What next, UJWs (Unicode Justice Warriors)?

In the grand scheme of things we already knew that this was bound to happen, and will continue to happen. We need to adapt our attitudes so that we can no longer feel embarrassed by revelations of a personal nature. Everyone will be better off in a future where we are not so obsessed with worrying about our secrets being exposed.

How quaint. Somebody who thinks that their internet use is anonymous.

If you act as if everything you post can eventually be traced to you and you're wrong, no harm done. If you act as though stuff will never be traced back to you and you're wrong, that's a different story.

Easy way to short circuit this - it's possible to follow their dress code and still look slutty. They want tops with collars? Fine - just don't button thrm up. Curve-accentuating jeans, shoes with clear acrylic heels (the ones worn b Trisha Heffer in Battlestar Galactica were originally obtained for $20 from Walmart). Purple or pink hair, etc. And guys, sporting bed hair all day, every day, should get your ball caps back. And get your kilts - and stay authentic - no tidy-whities.

Some rules are just begging to be broken in specific circumstances.

They can't or they would have already realized that there is no incentive to work for free so they can make money. Looks more like they can't afford to keep paying coders, or don't want to. Hey, why not work for me for free and I'll keep any money? No? Gee, not such a hot idea, is it.

I don't think anyone is in a rush to welcome our "All your free labor belongs to us" wanna be overlords.
