I love to code and really enjoy being on Stackoverflow. It has taught me a ton.

comment How can I convince management to deal with technical debt?
I recommend reading it again, then. Describing a conversation had with one's boss regarding a method for covering technical debt by padding estimates for future work does not answer the question, "How do you communicate this to management to get them interested in sorting out technical debt?" either. Nonetheless, I didn't down vote the answer because it added to the conversation. So, all you have succeeded in doing is muting an opinion on the matter with which you agree for no substantial reason. "Programmers" should be a place where we can have a conversation. Not everything is binary.

@gnat: How do most of the "answers" answer that question directly? See, for example, answers by James Anderson, tp1, or any answers at the top with the most votes. But to answer your question, I provided an alternative analogy the OP can use. Seems to me that you simply disagree with my opinion on the matter. That's fine, but no reason to downvote.

@gnat--here is your most popular answer: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/154733/… The question is very subjective. Can you please help me understand the differnce?

@gnat--There are cases in which software professionals need to ask a question like this and in which the resulting answer will help others. If this isn't the appropriate SE forum, then what is? Perhaps you could offer a better way to ask the question rather than to simply cite text from the help center.

comment Is there an established or defined best practice for source control branching between development and production builds?
Thanks @MarjanVenema. That is now becoming embarrassingly clear ;).
