It’s one thing to be sarcastic, it is another to be untruthful. If you are actually using File.dirname(File.dirname(__FILE__)) “frequently”, then you need to rethink your design. But I know you are a better coder than that. So you’re simply not being sincere, and thus not making a valid point.

I think it is in our interest to punish the first insult; because an insult unpunished is the parent of many others. – Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1785

You’re calling me a liar? You’re questioning MY design? You? You, who codes in the cold vacuum of outer-space. You, you are the wrench thrown into the gears of otherwise successful projects. You, who if he isn’t plagiarizing other people’s work is busily reinventing the wheel again and again for problems that have been solved for years. You’re a walking anti-pattern at every level: process, project, design, and code. When you suggest something, the opposite should be done. When you object to an idea, it should be shipped as soon as heavenly possible.

To you, I say: Suck by balls, Trans. Suck ‘em hard.

He can compress the most words into the smallest idea of any man I know. – Abraham Lincoln
