comment Have You Ever Had To Code “Badly” For Your Team?
+1 for the deleted anonymous delegate. Had similar experience. I started burying such things deep in to libraries where such programmers need not go.

comment Pros and Cons of working Remotely/from Home
+1. I find it difficult to focus on work remotely even when I could and end up going to office. Way too many distractions. I prefer the workplace distractions that are much easier to shut out.

comment What are your programming idiosyncrasies?
I had an experience with a piece of code where I removed a harmful code and then added comment to check-in why it shouldn't be done. About two years later I was troubleshooting a hard to reproduce problem and remembered having similar symptoms before and looked at the code. Sure enough, a similar code block was back in that place. This time I made sure just to comment the code and add a comment what that code does to the rest of the program logic and not to remove that comment. There may be a better solution.
