comment Pair Swapping: What are the Pros and Cons?
+1 for the great question. Sadly, I think it's hard enough to find a shop that does pairing on a regular basis, let alone enough to have data on pair-swapping. Hopefully i'm wrong about this and you get some good responses, I am very interested in hearing some.

comment Should I start making connections even if I'm not ready for a job yet?
@zdkroot - here are a few that I recommend starting with. I am mainly a .NET developer, so the ones I recommend will probably be heavier to that side of things. @robconery @shanselman @scottgu @johnsheehan @kevindente @sarajchipps @shawnwildermuth

comment Turn away a bug if no reproducible test case exists?
I agree with your example, but it sounds like the customer can't reproduce it either. Does this mean the bug does not exist? No, of course not. But should one spend time and energy on a bug that nobody, including the customer, can reproduce? Not in my book....

comment What to do if you find a vulnerability in a competitor's site?
@user17610 - I guess that depends on the situation... can't make a blanket statement and make all your decisions by that. If your competition wants to make boatloads of money, are you going to do the opposite?
