I feel you're judging the programmers a bit harshly. Unfortunately, even if one makes one's objections known in discussions (if there are any to start with, this depends on company culture), there not always taken into account.

You start from the assumption that managers and senior designers/programmers will listen to reason and follow common sense arguments, which unfortunately is not realistic in all cases.

Personally I've been lucky in this respect, and, judging from your post, so have you, but I'm afraid it's a mistake to take it for granted.

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

Update: Well, being nearly fired counts as being lucky in my book.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
