comment What is Pseudocode?
-1 Not helpful. The quote only makes sense among an explanation of pseudocode (missing in this answer). Otherwise, it could be quite misleading. A newbie could wonder: well, C#'s methods are all in English, so that means the C# I'm using is Pseudocode, right...? What do they call it when they're using C# in Germany?

comment What does mathematics have to do with programming?
Mathematics is not the process of solving equations. If the only mathematics you've ever seen is the mathematics taught in school, you have never seen actual mathematics.

comment Is it possible to write application-level logic in an XML or plain text format?
What you are about to do will be another occurrence of the anti-pattern known as the Inner Platform Effect. Abandon hope, all ye who enter here, for many have trodden down this path and created something that was just terrible because no you cannot enable nonprogrammers to program without knowing how to program. They are, inevitably, programming. Don't do it, it's a waste of your time.

comment How to teach a script to detect sarcasm?
@Kalle Let's be clear here. Sarcasm is one of the most subtle and advanced devices in spoken language. Even if you're a native English speaker, fully capable of picking up on the subtleties e.g. tone of voice and any relevant contextual information, you'll regularly fail to detect sarcasm. Non-native speakers stand almost no chance whatsoever. Take it to text and even the native speakers stand almost no chance. And you want computers, which struggle to dimly comprehend even the most simple of sentences, to solve this problem? Leave this to someone with a lifetime in speech and text analysis.

comment What is “The Cloud”? What do I say when people ask if my web service is “on the cloud”?
The definition has been clouded a bit in the midst of all the hype and marketing.

comment Are first person comments distracting and unprofessional?
-1 This isn't the case in most programming environments. In fact, it's probably not even the case in yours - what about whoever takes over your code after you leave the company?

comment Terminology question: Generalize Heisenbug
If you need it for debugging, how about "this bug only appears when debugging"? Coin a term if you like, but that's overcomplicating it.

comment Are first person comments distracting and unprofessional?
-1 because: there isn't a correct way, I find your summary of I/You/We a bit out of touch and I don't understand the last part. Aside: When I say "we" in my comments, I'm not trying to talk like a king - I'm talking to you, the guy reading my code, and walking you through my thoughts side-by-side.
