Evil list additions:
* The ‘new’ keyword. (Outside of factories and the like, that is.)
* RPG IV.
Not evil list amendment:
* Scripting Languages *except* *Perl*.
* Categorising people as Dwarves, Elves, Pirates or *Ninja*. (Bit of pedantry, there.)
Pending list addition:
Oh, and you can move Lotus Notes from pending to evil, too. 😉
Gah! I forgot regular expressions too…
REs? Evil or Not Evil? Mine are Not Evil, everyone else’s are Evil. 😉
Erm, definately not Evil I think.
If this was inspired by Russell Beattie’s posting http://www.russellbeattie.com/notebook/1007374.html then RealPlayer should have been listed somewhere in there.
If it wasn’t inspired by Russ, it’s an amusing synchronicity.
Yowser – that is a coincidence indeed! The inspriation came jointy from those “Whose Hot and Whose Not lists” you find in the gutter celebrity press, the series of (sometimes) bile spewing articles “Why X is Evil” by Allen Holub (http://www.google.com/search?q=Allen+Holub+why+evil&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8) and a realisation that we may be entering a second wave of potential madness with the current market boom.
