Apparently everyone is ok with the fact that the supposedly-open C++ standard is behind a $175 paywall?

@jujube At a glance, I'm... not actually seeing any good reasons there.

@woozle @jujube That sounds like just about every time I've struggled to figure out how to do something in C++ and found a bunch of C++ masochists on Stack Overflow mansplaining That's What The Standard Says.


@be @woozle Wizards tend to wave off questioners with a swish of their magic wand. Thou shalt not have a peek behind the magical curtain of knowledge.

It's similar to the haughty reply that used to permeate the programmingverse, "RTFM", even though the FM didn't answer the question being asked.
