Stack Overflow is a Q&A archive, not a personal debugging helpdesk. Your question is expected to contribute to the knowledge of humanity by being useful for someone else at some later date.

Upvotes are not for "correcting" downvotes. It is not your job to take away somebody else's right to vote. Only upvote if you thought that it was a great question/answer, not because you disagreed with somebody else's downvote.

I will not work for you if you or your recruiter requires CVs to be presented in Microsoft Word format.

I agree with @Steven: it stems predominantly from an overwhelming sense of frustration and helplessness, caused by the endless tide of antiquated/buggy/hard-to-maintain pseudo-C++ that just keeps on a'comin'.

@LordTydus: It's not just about that one header. The fact is, if the header is used in that book, it probably says a lot about the quality of the rest of the book.
