    Please restore the code tag checking script

    We the undersigned wish to petition the management of cprogramming.com to restore the post checking script which detected attempts to post code without using tags.

    If you agree, kick on the "yes" on the poll.

    If you disagree that such a script is a waste of space, then click "no" and some people will be around to "educate" you later on....
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Absolutely. I'm actually quiet surprised it was removed. Although it did have the nagging side effect of forcing one to place code tags before switching to the advanced edit box. But that's peanuts.

    When it was removed the numbers of posts without code tags raised incredibly.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Or if it only forced the tags for over 3 lines of code or something, cause lets be honest, code tags for a one liner shouldn't be forced, and are unnecessary!

    > code tags for a one liner shouldn't be forced
    They never were. It totally depended on what that line had in it. One of the triggers for the alert was the use of curly braces.

    I may have to cast a dissenting vote just to annoy Salem

    Is there a minimum amount of "signatures" required for this petition to be accepted?

    Agreed.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Can I vote yes again? How about another 20 times?
    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.
