Dev: Why did you suddenly start adding random whitespace to the end of all of the files in your PRs?


Dev: ?

Manager: That’s a way I came up with for tracking my contributions. Every time I edit a file I add a line of whitespace at the bottom so it’s clear to everyone how much and how often I’ve contributed to the team. Although I haven’t been doing it this entire time so I had to make up for this by adding more to files that I *know* I’ve touched a bunch before. Just think! Especially with how big my PRs are compared to everyone else the tally of my contributions is going to get huge!

Dev: …

    What the... Fuck?

    Does this manager use git without actually knowing anything about git? (Which I can image after reading some previous rants)

    This can't be real. Nobody's THAT stupid. If they were, they would forget to breathe and natural selection would do its thing.

    That's how I know this can't be real. It just can't

    @Lasoloz Yup. He types what he’s memorized into the cli. He understands none of it. Any problem outside of the rudimentary workflows he’s familiar with he pulls in a dev to hold his hand. If you give him any explanation other than just the commands needed to do what he wants he throws a temper tantrum.

    @netikras I don’t think it’s stupidity in this case I think it’s narcissism and arrogance. He doesn’t like git and anything other than the basics of how to push and pull he thinks is for try-hard nerds and that there’s better things to spend time on.

    @netikras Plus if I showed him git blame it’s all he’d use all day in order to pull people into meetings and dress them down about writing a line of code that was involved in a bug which is more annoying than having 300 lines of code in a ~320 line file

    Thought this was gonna be about automatic newline insertion on the last line for convenience,

    @boombodies since he doesn't know git-blame.. Why not just remove those blanks? 😁 blame it on IDE's autoformatter 😁

    mutter... loc contribution game... mutter mutter.

    Why not add a space at the end of every line in file you edit??

    @netikras "Nobody's THAT stupid" - every time someone says this, the universe thinks "challenge accepted"...

    This is such a dangerous and annoying mix of stupid and asshole.

    Granted though, old mate is thinking out of the box. Maybe he should be an entrapreneur and see his own start up going rock-bottom instantly

    @netikras would git blame even help him if you remove lines :)

    You cannot have a blame on a line that do not exist ;)

    For that you need the commit log and compares.
