comment Is it acceptable to upload offensive content to GitHub?
I think there are plugins for many editors that make editing rot13 files no harder than editing any other file that's in a specialized format

comment Does your company have a written policy about contributing to open-source projects?
Not every "contract" you sign is legal and enforcable. Unless what you are doing on your own time, and using your own space and equipment, competes directly with your employer, they would have a difficult time enforcing anything as draconian as "you can't write code that's not for us". Imagine a car repair technician who was forbidden from fixing his own car?

comment Can compilers and interpreters have bugs, and what can we (as users) do to deal with them?
The correct quote is all non-trivial programs have bugs. Most "Hello world" programs probably don't have bugs.

comment Did the developers of Java consciously abandon RAII?
@Giorgio, the "with-open-file" macro in Lisp is similar to the "using" construct in C#. See the original question for why "using" is not a complete replacement for RAII

comment Why does git allow you to “change history”?
Really disagree on the close... "exact duplicate"? Really? I'm asking about the design decisions (and design philosophy) going into svn vs. git and the other question is asking about whether to delete history or not. My question got some very interesting answers that had nothing to do with whether to delete history. No comparison in my opinion. Disappointed!
