2 Jira has two fundamental problems: Java and Managers. Java's crude memory management forces you to restart the app whenever your users do something new, and managers constantly insist on doing something new ("add these ten plugins, give my project thirteen custom fields, give each team its own separate workflow, let us paste 50,000-line debug logs into text fields, integrate with this third-party tool that injects 500 new tickets per minute from outside the firewall, and fix the speed, it's so slow!").

My personal favorite feature of Jira is rich-text processing of text fields, so that when someone blindly pastes a log file, it takes forever to render and ends up sprinkled with emoji.

3 "This is technically correct, since half a percent is indeed less than half."
Isn't this exactly why they call it The Grauniad?

4 " So while I'm sure there's every kind of nonsense going on in the comments over there, I can't tell you exactly what kind."
You could tell by signing out.
Better yet, once you do that, just delete your account.

5 Had to laugh because of one Jira comment where the commenter was saying that coding wasn't all that complicated.  Once upon a time I worked on a reporting team and got two requests for a certain type of report.  Both came with the same estimates.  One had no hidden minefields, the other one did.  The simple one took a couple of weeks to be production ready.  The minefield special took about 8 months.  Congratulations, I am now the team expert on this type of report.  The next time a request of this type came through I was given the analysis work and management kept insisting I had to provide a time estimate on it.  They couldn't understand why I kept refusing until I went through umpteen iterations of the same explanation - for a while I thought I was stuck in an explanation infinite loop.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
