though I speak four languages, I still can’t figure this one out w/any certainty?

People who say the letter H incorrectly. It’s aitch not haitch.

RE: “good code crashes” should be “bad code crashes”.

Below is the post, as intended–

For a community supposedly familiar with code and the importance of syntax and code “grammar”, we might suppose code geeks also understand the importance of good English.

At least, they should give grammar its due in spoken discourse the same way some drool over sophisticated programming techniques.

Good writing and good coding are not merely Good Housekeeping concepts– optional, at best. Just as bad code crashes, so we edge away from the redneck who speaks like one (and more than likely) thinks like one.

Not that there is anything wrong with rednecks, right?

That rules out the last “To”
