The problem with any remark, comment, oneliner, if it gets overused, a number of things happen
- they get a life of their own. Everybody starts to parrot this "wisdom" because of how good it sounds
- the use of the term gets disconnected from the original meaning, because it is an easy, and thus lazy comment to make
- instead of being helpful, or any kind of contribution to the quality and ethics of software engineering, it becomes the catchphrase of choice for individuals who want their opinion to be taken for "superior" at all cost.

What everybody *should* have done instead, is work out why, or why not, they are using a particular construct, and show real professionalism that way, rather than faking it through gratuitous remarks that sit well with the boss.

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
