In my rant I wasn't ranting against people reinventing the wheel. I was ranting about people reinventing the wheel, having troubles and not showing the code. Though what I was actually thinking about were people using third party source code for their reinvention of the wheel and then not posting the source they used when they said they have problems.
For example: "I was using some article
to make my own smart pointer/singleton/memory pool
class and I'm getting compiler errors."
Oh, and while I'm in a ranting mood, let me add total lack of reading comprehension
to my list of pet peeves.
