Anyone else agree this is fundamentally broken?


Yes. The answer that I gave some folks a couple years ago was "Please don't ask me questions I can google the answer for."

There was a few seconds of silence.

The question they asked me was something along the lines of "what's an abstract class?" Seriously? I've been programming for 40+ years and you ask me that???
