It wasn't directed at you (even though I realize now it looked that way).
It was just my daily rant, and when I was writing, I remember an idiot
PHB at a place I worked: on the first day he started he came to me:
"What environment/editor are people using?" he asked me
"Whatever they want: some use J Builder, other Emacs, I use vim, etc."
"Oh, that _has_ to change!" he said immediately
"Why?" I asked
"Well, ..., because, ..., we have to have standards!"
"Because... eh,... so we don't have anarchy"
"F*ck off!" I laughed, "Go mind your own business."
But I was in a privileged position then, and I realized how become
engulfed in this myriad of useless standards and procedures all
over the place, yet people miss the important stuff most of the time.
So don't mind me, I just had to get it off my chest. :)))
