Sorry to come back to this but:

This kind of comment is the worst you can do and should be below the 
standard of any coder ever. What you are doing here is like a car mech 
who stands next to the designer of the engine, and when the whole car 
blows up in a crowded street, you say "I know it, it could not work, 
because you are all idiots".

How in heaven can you post something like this w/o thinking about that 
it "might" give others the impression that you are missing the slightest 
bit of social skills?
If you find code that does not work, no-one expects from you that you 
fix it. But you could at least think of telling someone instead of 
storing it in your brain until you find a reason to wrap it around an 
imaginary brick and throw it at someone. This kind of thing is making me 
understand why some people rather code for closed-source projects. As 
long as people dont help to improve the code, why bother?
