  • Data and functions

And what about "The most mismatched mismatched pair is:" as the title?

    Surely, Arunbear, that ought to be "The most mismatched mismatched pair are:", or possibly "The most mismatched mismatched pairs is:" ?


    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
      Arrrr! Is got me. Didn't see that even after Arunbear hid that out in the open in his comment. It hath been changed forthwith.

    The impetus to write that poll came when i read a definitions document that used Header and Trailer. After ranting about it, i decided to post the poll here, which is more to generate discussion on this topic than provide a list of possibilities. So, to me, the word "annoying" is essential.

    Regardless, i don't actually care what the title is. I figure even without a title people would get it.

    Actually, i'm not quite sure what you mean by data and functions.
      It's an allusion to the school of thought which argues that data and functions should be kept separate e.g. Why OO sucks

        Ah, now i understand!

        Nonetheless, that doesn't make it a mismatched pair, as OOP never paired the two per se, it simply defined them within the same context. This sounds more like Holy War (Re: poll ideas quest 2014) material, and though i disagree with his explanations, i don't care enough about it to disagree with his disagreement (hence, no HW.)

        That being said, i also don't care what would be listed in this possible poll, as long as it makes some sense and has some remote chance to generate a meta-HW discussion, which could prove to be informative and entertaining.
