We all stroke our egos in one way or another. For example, if I were to say "you take pride in your work", you could also say that I was "accusing" you of "ego stroking". Would you find that insulting?

I think you find it insulting because you believe it, and find that revelation uncomfortable.

You don't need religion for that kind of insanity. Do some reading about the dechristianisation of France during the French Revolution. I'll wait.

Nasty, isn't it? Given the evidence, it's difficult to believe that ideological atheism won't lead to irrationality and bloodshed just as quickly and easily as any religion.

.but be sure to bulk up on testers and maintenance people to help you re-invent jQuery's host of fix-ups.

You know that that's a long debunked myth, right?

jQuery was never good at "harmonizing all of the bits of personality across vendors and versions". It even introduced it's own long list of browser incompatibilities. Remember the IE8 fiasco? That was all due to the grossly incompetent design of jQuery. It's all on c.l.j, if you're willing to do a bit of digging.

I banned it ages ago, for technical reasons. I can't even begin to predict how many thousands of hours we've saved as a result.
