Brad Frost on the unjustness of presumptions:

“Just clone the dev branch, add those three grunt tasks, and recompile…”

“Just use this software/platform/toolkit/methodology…”

“Just” makes me feel like an idiot. “Just” presumes I come from a specific background, studied certain courses in university, am fluent in certain technologies, and have read all the right books, articles, and resources. “Just” is a dangerous word.

More such dangerous words: quick, must, simply.

Update: Few more from Jason Fried: can’t, easy, only, fast.
