I'll pick on you for a bit, although this applies to all too many technical people; I, too, slip up periodically. When people write "it's" instead of "its" and other such mistakes, is any programming language sufficiently idiot-proof? (Answer: Only if bugs absolutely cannot result in exploitable software.) Veering OT a bit, C class libraries have all sorts of bells and whistles to simplify "features". Why not add classlib support for safe programming, such as bounds-checked buffers? Some of us write/use our own, anyway...
