  Not the first time around.  I'm subtracting some in the precision
  department due to the visibly limited English skills of the author.

  I find comments scornful of quality indicative of incompetence
  bordering on the criminal.  When repeated, it was no accident.

  People who are _unable_ to write bug-free code should wake up and
  smell the coffee and do the world a favor by just abstaining from
  writing any more buggy code.  We have enough people who write buggy
  code who are at least _able_ to write bug-free code...

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
