Yeah, I'm pretty sure that we do.

In this case, not so much, since it's quite clear what's happening from the error output. Not much ambiguity there.

Which is again, irrelevant.

No, I haven't. I don't have time to familiarize myself with the 6,282,928 special snowflake unique rule systems that every special snowflake community on the planet expects everyone to memorize and be intimately familiar with at all times. No one else does, either, whether they're honest enough to admit it or not. 

Hell, the average American commits at least three felonies a day, every day, without even realizing it. Have you read the entire text of the U.S. legal code, citizen? No? You criminal.

I tried to pay you a compliment, Carl, but I guess you just don't know how to take one.
