Re: not-so-smart with pointers

> [ ... ] resource management

That buzzword was invented specifically for programmers who couldn't handle memory management correctly, and got very offended when this inability was pointed out to them at code review time.

It's not memory, it's a resource. Your program does not leak memory like a sieve, it is not optimized for efficient resource management.

Sounds savant and less incompetent.
