Stackoverflow jumps from/into a dumpster

I don't know who is the author of this priceless piece of art but I want to share it anyway (if you know the source then please let me know).

Anyway, so why would I mention it?

StackOverflow sucks

Actually, I expressed this opinion more than one year ago as a comment here. After a couple of additional encounters with this nonsense I decided to extract it to this blog.

So what's the problem?

Here are some of the issues:


This just proves that there is no point to have authorities on such websites. Just let the peer review to do its thing.

Good news!

StackExchange is rather new, all we have to do is wait a few years until it is filled with useless bullshit. Then the problem will fix itself (stackoverflow will die and we will get back to wikis, FAQs, docs, IRC and other stuff that actually works in a long run).

You can also read my other comment.

Be conscious and try not to support Stackoverflow.

Agree. I've never liked SO and even go so far as to include
-site:stackoverflow.com in my Google searches so I don't have to wade through the massive amounts of garbage and misinformation that is so prevalent there.
