I would rather be hated for doing what I believe in, than loved for doing what I don't.

Aw man, I can surely attest to the C++ one.  At work, C++ can get really crazy with all the referencing that gets done.

What's that?  You want to use this objects operator=?  Cool!  Oh, by the way, I forgot to tell you I was passed by reference, and originally I was a RogueWave smart pointer.  By copying me, you are actually dealing with the exact same object as before, but you didn't immediately know that.  Ha ha!  Sucker.

I liked the unix one. I've done plenty of stuff like that, and will probably continue to.
