I work for a small investment and loan company. I take care of the main software (built by yours truly), that deals with the accounting. I also do lots of freelancing work related to web-based software.

I have successfully built my own custom CMS, that I started in 2009 and released the first time in 2010. Hoping to publish it for commercial usage.

Been developing websites for 11 years now. Mostly with PHP and JavaScript.

I got two Benz's and I love to drink coffee.

comment Should I include a selfdestruct-method to my applications?
I see. I get your point. For the record, the kill-switch was going to be included on noncommercial software, and mostly only inside my own server or at least in the development-mode only. Some clients demand, that the development would be done inside their own servers and that leaves me in a very very vulnerable situation. I currently have all files credited, designs are watermarked, my name is EVERYWHERE -- I feel pretty confident, that I will win the lawsuit.. I think having kill-switches in my own server would be still a good idea, in case someone steals them.

I'm sorry, but your answer is lacking the WHY-part. Why is it a bad idea and based on what I could go to jail? Can you explain a little further?

@Anna: Agreed, however since my interests are involved, then my opinion is compromised. Still, I thought this fits the format of Programmers, or I wouldn't have posted it. At least it was open for so long, that programmers from different timezones could respond :)

@Steven: This is a joke-answer. This is as helpful as "google how to detect sarcasm". And actually, I did get alot better answers.

CAPS-LOCK gets detected before sarcasm (however, in the form of most of the strings characters being uppercase). With that I'm hoping to nerf the use of uppercase characters. So if we know, that the client doesn't user much uppercase characters, then we can detect single or more words in a string as possible sarcasm.

For the record, neither did you say it is possible or give any valuable direction. As far as I understand, you were only sarcastic and basically mocking my attempts to do something, what you wouldn't do?! Correct?

@Anna Lear: ToneCheck seems very interesting. However, I don't quite get, how they are detecting and most likely the system is bigger then my house. However, I got an idea on what may trigger the sarcasm-detection. Ty, for the link.

@DaveNay: I agree on the fact, that predefining sarcastic scenarios is actually possible, but very difficult. Obviously 100% match is going to impossible, but some % should be possible. I also think, that making such point on a incorrect syntax as you did in your first part of the question, is not obvious in a Programming community and I still look at it as a very poor answer.

@DaveNay: I see. Well, your edit clears it up and I removed my -1, but the answer still is still telling to "just quit", rather then "try something". I already got some slight ideas, on how you can detect some sarcasm. But I don't agree, that it is totally impossible.

Thanks for your answer. This answers quality is definitely better then the one above. I think creating a database of actual phrase is gonna get too big. However a database of words + some other methods, could actually make it work (not 100%, but then again not 0%). I'm planning to add a verification step. If the script detects a slight level of sarcasm, it will ask: Was that sarcasm? If you respond: "OH NO", then it confirm the sarcasm and actually get mad and ignore you for some time (the time will be determined by the level of sarcasm).
