I don't know why I need to enter a code from my Mac onto my iPad to verify that I really want the iPad logged into my iCloud account WHEN THEY'RE WIRED TOGETHER to do an update. What security Apple thought this was providing I can't imagine...

@joe@olszowka was complaining about not having heard any details about the replacements for these people. (He's not the only one to go.) I guess it depends on whether the new folks are just tools or are interested in changing things, and able to.
@prometheus One largely overlooked part of the analysis (even in my theory) was that they set aside the smaller group of mixed whitespacers because they weren't significantly different from pure tabbers in outcome.
I conclude that developers who don't understand a question about tabs vs. spaces know less about development overall than those who understood (or just have a tendency to misunderstand) which leads to lower salaries in a (partly) meritocratic system. (6/6)
The most entertaining part of the thread was people insisting that no one could possibly have misunderstood the survey question, just a few posts up- or downthread from obvious statements of misunderstanding of the survey question. (5/n)
The best theory was repeated and/or rediscovered many times in the thread, including by posters of no obvious affiliation: people misunderstood the survey question in a way that consistently pushed them into the tabber group, weighing it down. (4/n)
