Study: Chimpanzees Have Evolved To Kill Each Other

jalet Re:Recent claims by whom? (224 comments)

jalet Freeloaders (120 comments)

There are two kinds of them : the one who complains for any reason and often doesn't even know why, wasting coders' time, and the one who sends logically articulated problem reports (not necessarily in a bug tracker), helping coders to improve their software.
