:fucc: :hot_shit: 🍻

who invented the smart quote, so I can flush them down a toilet

@tekniklr The smart quote: Like a regular quote, but internet-connected and insecure.

@varx sneaking up behind you after you'd already typed a perfectly reasonable standard quote, just to ruin your day

@tekniklr ...almost as good as an invisible not-quite-a-space at the end of a URL pasted from a Word doc into a Linux config file.
