I would say that IMHO there are no trivial error messages: if compiler/interpreter complains, it is an error and must

An idea is not responsible for the people who believe in it...

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
