Yet you assume that I have no experience, have never cleaned up messes
after others, and generally have no clue what I'm talking about. At no
point did I state that I see no value in expecting the unexpected or
that I disagree with defensive programming. What I did state is that I
prefer clearing up any unclear areas and remove assumptions - if I end
up spending most of my time doing defensive programming because I
haven't cleared up the specifications with the client, then I have
done a very poor job.
Anyway, I doubt there's much point in continuing the conversation -
you seem to have a set worldview and it appears that my role in it is
the same regardless of what I state from here on out.
So: best of luck to you.
