Bugs in software cost the industry and users billions each year due to lost productivity and increased help desk costs yet every day tens of thousands of bugs are coded into programs even by qualified IT professionals. Alarmingly the number of bugs increases every day by a real lot! Obviously this thrend is unacceptable and must be reversed before it gets even more out of hand.
Several measures have been attemped to remove bugs from software by various governments with plans including: more taxes, the 'one bug' policy, debugging levies, more taxes, zero tollerance, equal oppertunity, the death penalty and others. Unfortunately, the results of these trials have been much like a microwaved pie -- luke warm and mushy.
Don't just stand idly by and watch bug after bug be created, it's time to take matters into your own hands and send developers the message that bugs will not and can not be tollerated.
How YOU can help: Increase public awareness! Adorn your mantlepiece, door or wall with an exclusive No Bugs or Bug Free Zone (PDF) warning sign. If you have a web site - add the no bugs logo [smaller version, larger version] (GIF) image to inform your users that your software contains no bugs (just features) or if your site isn't software related, bung it there anyway just to show you care!
