When Bugs Aren't Allowed

telecsan Re:Rules of thumb (489 comments)

I wrote a mighty big long dissertation, much to the head shaking disapproval of my classmates, who held that the more you wrote, the more mistakes you would make. Made like 2 errors in 20 pages.

That example has nothing to do with your point. Had you only written 10 pages, you may well have had only one error. Besides, the GP was stating that if you doubled the number of coders, it would double the bugs. Have one of your classmates help you write that dissertation, and I'll be impressed if you come out with fewer than 4 (i.e. twice the number of) errors.

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
