With respect to StackOverflow

I believe there's great value to short, clear and "to the point" answers, telling the user exactly which direction he should be moving. It is okay to add an answer repeating what was already said if it has more concise and better wording. Like with Google Search, think of reducing the time it taskes to get the satisfied reader off the answer page as quickly as possible.

comment Should UTF-16 be considered harmful?
Dear Medinoc, please consider that one of the major points of the utf8everywhere.org manifesto is to say that you should never be switching between ANSI and any unicode encoding or support ANSI in the first place. There should be no non-unicode-aware programs written, compiled or tested.

There is no leak - the memory is freed properly by the destructor of std::wstring

comment Which language features are considered harmful?
"fool-proofness" has no value? Every manager knows he will have morons or drunk programmers working on his code at some point.
