Poor Coding Examples

n00b of the Week

We won't be naming the individual responsible for this shocking bit of Java, but I'm sure you'll guess from his hilarious println code:

catch(SettingException e) {



//do nothing


Classic PRISM Coding Examples

Absolutely atrocious use of naming... Even in the comments, they note it as a "panel to store tabs". SO WHY NOT CALL IT F***ING TABPANEL!!!!!!!!
JPanel thePanel = new JPanel(); // panel to store tabs
For programmers that are clearly capable of producing hundreds of thousands of lines of code, they haven't quite got to grips with the basics.

And don't get me started on the classes named Apple, Orange, Pear and any other fruit you can come up with. I propose we rename the parent package "fruit salad".
And while I'm ranting, this Wiki is very annoying...

public void closeDown() { closeDown(true); }

public void closeDown(boolean check) {...

case 1: {break;}

case 2: doExit = false;

default: doExit = false;

public void exit() {

Does not always call exit on close.
