Sendmail effect: Any complex technology which doesn’t come with documentation must be the best available.

I found that little tidbit in Linux Advanced Routing and Traffic Control HOWTO.

I’ve also just encountered that definition in the same article. It is funny indeed.

Less funny but also amusing… I misinterpreted the imperative “must” as a requirement/goal for the authors of the software as opposed to an implied assumption on the part of the users of the software. Leading to some confusion since I know from bitter experience that sendmail is quite far from “best available.” :)
