-0 for +1

with one comment

Google has come up with some kind of a like-a-like called +1. For those who may have not been part of an open source development community, ever, you need to know that this convention has been in place since the internet was a child, and Google’s arse was the size of a button. The full remit of of the taxonomy goes thusly

  • +1 – I agree, and thanks for saving me the typing
  • +0 – I don’t really care, to be honest, but slight preference on it happening rather than not, i.e. I’m emotionally content to be part of the majority here.
  • -0 – I’ve no argument one way or the other, but I dislike change, and if there’s an issue I’ll veto this bastard.
  • -1 – THIS IS THE DUMBEST IDEA I HAVE EVER HEARD. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE THE BALLS TO BRING THIS UP WHEN YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE THINKS IT IS STUPID. Divers alarums, lying down in the road and Godwin’s Law ensue (exeunt omnes)
