Yeah, screw this place and everything about it. Any forum that BANS users for posting questions like this:

http://programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/150266/is-c-too-hard

It's deleted now that I put this up here, something they refused to do earlier... Go figure. That's what happens when you make twits angry I guess.

These sites simply doesn't deserve my participation. I knew the mods here were absurdly self-indulgent but this just takes the cake. It's really too bad, but life is way to short to frustrate myself with stupid people I'm not forced to deal with.

Contact me on my forum if you've got any question about something I've said in these sites, I will not be returning here.

Gist of question (it won't let me post the entire thing):

So I'm starting to doubt the future of C++ and wonder if some of the new features actually made it better or just made it so that more people will be baffled by more code and more managers will have more things to say you can't ever use in a project...

So what is the future here? Is C++ getting better or worse? Is there something out there that can take its place, which has the same power but doesn't give the average developer a stroke?

Sounds like you really want the LGPL.

comment Is programming in the real world much less about programming itself?
One time my boss actually started crying and called me "ungrateful" because I wanted to know how an important piece of code worked and suggested the testers that used to test it didn't do as perfect a job as she thought. I quit that place. If I had to stay in late in an environment like that on an average basis... Luckily I get to go home after 8 hours pretty much every day except when we have some sort of major FUBAR. As a service provider when something breaks we're screwed and have to stay in..but that's only happened to me once so far.

I don't have that problem so much, but a lot of developers are just so mouse like that a guy like me can have a hard time. I have opinions, I'm not afraid to argue about them... I like to get consensus and work with the team to provide the right solution. But people don't say what they want because they're afraid of feelings and then instead go to the boss and complain about you for doing things ways they don't like. Suggest a code piece should change and whoever wrote it gets all offended and crap. Say the word "crap" and get turned in to HR for being "hostile" (it was the example).

comment Ways to version user generated documents
@dev.e.loper - a decent RCS, SVN included, should be able to handle that many users.
