The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Yeah, that would be my initial reaction too. Just making sure the body/to/ccs/etc are working right. Of course, I'm coming from my world, where we have several automatically-generated emails. Although I would typically write this info to a log instead of copying myself/someone else.

A little disappointing that dev didn't configure the 'emailChecker' address so it could be easily de-configured.
