“Who is my neighbour?”
A developer was working in an Object-Oriented programming language when their software was hacked. In a panic and not knowing what else to do, they put out an appeal to any other developers to help.
The first person to hear of the problem was a developer who only worked in purely functional languages. They were overheard mumbling something about avoiding null-reference exceptions but didn’t do anything to help.
The second developer to see the request for help spent their days writing C and Assembly code. They started to write a reply about how they never have to deal with problems like this but decided against sending it.
Just like the Bible, this wasn't written to be kept to yourself.
