It also seems to replace big numbers with null. It's still sorted into the last position, but I'm not sure if that's because it realizes that it's the biggest number or if it's because it treats null as a string.
I believe it. I always see $170k+ people lining up for voluntary salary reductions.
This article has to be a marketing ploy of some sort. Isn't ladders the $100k site? I'll guess most jobs on there are $100-150k. Probably much less jobs in the $200k+ area advertise on the web, so they need to rationalize why it's okay that they have none listed;
"We did a study, you don't want to make over $170k, you'll be unhappy."
Turning down a raise is like turning down an oral elephant; it might be offered just once a year so you better say yes!
That paradox is kinda addressed in the last line, if these people were down the dung factory shoveling sh*t then they'd be happy and content.
Unfortunately for them some sort of aspiration kicked in somewhere down the line (probably at the suggestion of a woman). As is usual with keen people who cannot do the job properly they get promoted out of the way as it is a lot easier to promote someone than to sack them. Before long they are IT Director and constantly crapping themselves that they're gonna get found out and everything will come tumbling down.

I am kind of seeing the same thing when I use Chrome, but not in IE. Not on CodeProject, but on RootAdmin. Interestingly, sometimes I see the ad loading at the top, scroll to the bottom and for some reason the footer ad fails to load and displays the "You are being a bad boy" message, then when I scroll back to the top, the message is also displayed there, on top of the ad that actually had loaded...
