Wrong Thing
Jump to user comments
jargon A design, action, or decision that is clearly
incorrect or inappropriate. Often capitalised; always
emphasised in speech as if capitalised. The opposite of the
Right Thing; more generally, anything that is not the Right
Thing. In cases where "the good is the enemy of the best",
the merely good - although good - is nevertheless the Wrong
Thing. "In C, the default is for module-level declarations to
be visible everywhere, rather than just within the module.
This is clearly the Wrong Thing."
