Clueless Product Manager
« on: July 03, 2006, 04:06:44 PM »
"As a software development manager, A. Selvan sees his fair share of WTF's. Though most are suited for the likes of Dilbert comic strips, every now and then he'll come across a story that best fits here. Today I'd like to share one of these stories in the form of an email conversation between A. and the new Product Manager..."

    A-----,
    I've noticed that in several places (most prominently, Help-About),
    there is the product version, build number, etc. Please have your team
    remove this information in our next release.


It gets better.

the customers knowing this information and need it removed.

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code is a violent psychopath and knows where you live.
