I want software to be:

Robust => designed to accomodate all known edge cases

Reliable => operable for an extended period of time under expected conditions without failures

You'd think that it would occur to someone that I made my word choice in this post deliberately in full knowledge of the implications of them in the context of brevity

Or they could just all write the same stupid replies to it with more brief versions
