Someone just wrote me a long email saying “software engineer” is a misnomer and that programmers do not deserve the classification because “real” engineers’ work cannot fail as often as software and programmers do not use scientific principles.

How should I respond?

@jeremiahlee I mean, I actually get the general idea. There are a lot of developers with a sufficiently poor understanding of working towards reliability that the sentiment makes some kind of sense.

But also, a picture of the Titanic.
