jargons i hate

◆ duck typing

A term i despise about tech geekers, is the “duck typing”. Like, in their drivel they would say, blab blab, blab, quack like a duck, so xyz.

◆ foobar
Another term i hate about tech geekers, is “foo” and “bar”. When i read some doc saying “e.g. foo this, bar that”, i really want to tell them to “foobar your ass”.

◆ hacker
And the worst of all, is the obsession about the term “hack, hacking, hackers”. Biggest transgressors here is Richard Stallman and Paul Graham.
