Got assigned to fix a bug in a validation function that would always return true even if the data is invalid.
I looked at the code from the function and noticed that the only line of code in the function was "return true;"
Apparently, the programmer who wrote this function a few years ago got fired and no one ever finished his work.
Now it amazes me that no one ever has looked at the problem and just assumed it would be a complicated bug.8
