Comment Why is everyone assuming the he is competent? (Score 2) 308

Why does everyone take his side? He is the one that added a feature and broke it. Sound like he added a feature without discussing with the original developer? When he says "You create a small new feature, and the app breaks down in unexpected ways. You fix a bug, and new bugs pop up all over the place" sounds like he was the person that hacked the code and not the original person.

Woman Wins Libel Suit By Suing Wrong Website 323

An anonymous reader writes "It appears that Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones and her lawyer were so upset by a comment on the site TheDirty.com that they missed the 'y' at the end of the name. Instead, they sued the owner of TheDirt.com, whose owner didn't respond to the lawsuit. The end result was a judge awarding $11 million, in part because of the failure to respond. Now, both the owners of TheDirty.com and TheDirt.com are complaining that they're being wrongfully written about in the press — one for not having had any content about Sarah Jones but being told it needs to pay $11 million, and the other for having the content and having the press say it lost a lawsuit, even though no lawsuit was ever actually filed against it."
