Around this time last year while I was working with Kent Skinner at thePlatform and were ripping out the #REGION sections wherever we found them in legacy code, we Googled for the phrase “Regions are Evil” and didn’t find any matches.
Now I’m delighted to say that in addition to my rant from a few months ago, I’ve recently found a few other anti-region arguments. including the specific “Regions are Evil” phrase we predicted.
Mind you, in the comments of one blog, someone calls the anti-region sentiment “a load of elitist horsecrap”. I think I can live with that, though. I’ve been called worse.
