Talking about development practice on IRC

…I do understand that it is tempting, but it is just wrong for the (almost obvious) reasons i already pointed out. There is an easy rule to follow.

You should not start with the wrong approach in the first place. This is why i discourage it completely.

Tell/teach only best practices. Talk about the drawbacks and lessons learned already. Point out what’s wrong with the other approaches as they get mentioned. Stop bad practice at first – if you are in the position.

– Be a good senior!

Often times people do not want to hear what you have to say. Many times they don’t listen and don’t care. Some times they come back and wish they would have.

That’s not your burden though…
