@15F9 incredible. you solved ethics, right here on this very website. how did you do it?
@dankwraith amazing, it happened again
@Authoritimmy @sexybenfranklin @witchfynder_finder @Aleums @dankwraith agreed for how it's a form of brain damage. Probably because our career and education is based on "here's basic logic. Now implement sorting from scratch even though we've long ago written optimized built-in functions for it." It's an urge I have to tell my juniors to fight on a daily basis.
@wilbr I think it also self selects people who are prone to this thinking. In order to succeed in coding you have to build from basics and abstract away any confounding elements.
Like upthread a user endorsed law which is essentially just importing the "common law" library rather than writing it from scratch. I'm sure they accept that it has flaws, but *shrug* let's fix it upstream
@15F9 just out of curiosity, have you ever read any Edouard Siddon?
