Here's a little joke that cracks me up:

So, a guy walks up to me and says, "I'm a tepee. I'm a wigwam. I'm a tepee! I'm a wigwam!" I said to him, "Relax, man. You're two tents!"

Which programmers do you want to talk to? All programmers everywhere? Your co-workers? StackOverflow?

comment Alternative inheritance paradigms in object-oriented design
Asking for a list of anything is off-topic here. If you want to learn about the best way to design a class hierarchy, ask about class design. But make it a specific question.

comment Alternative inheritance paradigms in object-oriented design
You are asking for links to external resources or books. That is off-topic at Stack Overflow. You have the option to rework your question so that it is on-topic here, rather than finding another resource.

comment Does auto make C++ code harder to understand?
@PlasmaHH: In my case, MSVC10 doesn't do range-based for loops. Since MSVC10 is my go-to C++11 testbed, I don't really have much experience with them.

@Nawaz: It's easy to come up with crazy-long template names using maps. :)

comment Why are there so many string classes in the face of std::string?
Re concern #1 -- C++03 21.3.6/1 guarantees that c_str() returns a pointer to contiguous storage, which provides for some C-interoperability. However you cannot modify the pointed-to data. Typical workarounds include using a vector<char>.

comment Real programmers use debuggers?
-1: "Your methods should be small/simple enough to be compiled and run by your mind" is diconnected from reality. That's like saying a function that is longer than 20 lines is too long. Nonsense.
