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, embarrassing 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.

I have had grief with that site too.
At one point they told me that the thing that I saw happen in Visual Studio 2017 was not happening...
even though I had provided them with exact screenhots of the issue. Others had posted the same problem and confirmed.
The issue was finally resolved just because it happened to be fixed in the next release anyways, but it was annoying.

I am not sure I want to bother reporting the other issues I have run into.

That is the exact same effect it had on me. Since they just say, "oh, yeah, whatever..." and don't even bother to say, "ok, we'll look into this, it looks like something" it just ends up annoying you more really.

I really don't like when these type of forums turn into that. StackOverflow/StackExchange sites often turn into this and so it teaches you to only be a "reader" and never a "reporter" which is really unfortunate.
Especially in cases like yours - I read your reports and they contain very useful info that someone could take action on if they wanted to. But no. Sigh | :sigh:
