= B =
brute force and ignorance n.
A popular design technique at
many software houses -- brute force coding unrelieved by any
knowledge of how problems have been previously solved in elegant
ways. Dogmatic adherence to design methodologies tends to
encourage this sort of thing. Characteristic of early larval stage programming; unfortunately, many never outgrow it. Often
abbreviated BFI: "Gak, they used a bubble sort! That's
strictly from BFI." Compare bogosity.
