  • Programmers have principles -- technical principles. You do not ask a programmer to ignore his principles. A good programmer knows nothing good comes of this. The gains are short lived and thoroughly not worth the long term cost. Repeated experience with this solidifies the principle. A good programmer would no more deploy kludgery or pretend that a broken system works than he would rob a bank. Yet management is insisting, and taking arms when their demands aren't met. Ultimately their demands are for the impossible.
