No, I’m not talking about people who “use poor grammar”.

I won’t hire people who can’t won’t double-check their URL for correctness. Many content management systems (CMS), such as WordPress or Blogger, have an option to use the title of the blog post as a partial or whole URL. There’s an argument to be made on whether a date option is better than using parts of the blog title. We’ll save that for another day.

Let’s just leave it that “i_wont_hire_people_who_use_poo.html” probably wasn’t the best choice. Truncation matters, folks. It matters.
