Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

we generally like a bit more context than this in answers. Is there a summary or a paragraph or two that best explains?

comment What are some tips for making an international flight with a toddler?
I am sorry you found my comment upsetting. I was just pointing out that the OP said the child was 20 months old and may not be able to constructively talk to, much less play, with other children at that age without extremely close supervision. YMMV.

comment How do you know if you're ready to be a parent?
@javid I tend to agree but the responses so far are reasonable. Let's make it all community wiki from inception and monitor it.

comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
I think of physical punishment as the Mutually Assured Destruction nuke -- you need it around as a deterrent, but if you use it, everyone tends to lose.

comment How old is old enough for a child to have their ears pierced?
soliciting opinions is exactly the opposite of what this site is about -- so be sure that your opinions are BACKED UP with either a reference, or a personal experience.
