I'm in a spot I hate being in. I hate to admit when I am wrong, but I have no choice. I'm wrong on this one and both Zereo and chrisname are right.
[EDIT]Well not right in one regard as chrisname proved that Jargon is used within a group and not factual to anyone else outside of that group. As we are talking about hacker in regard to how programmers (group) define it as opposed to the general public (group) define it.
The "Jargon File" is the de facto official dictionary of hacker terms, we're not talking about just some jargon people in that group tend to use. Yes, hacker can be used for other things---it's also a golf term as your dictionary states---but the hacker sub-culture has its own dictionary called the Jargon File that defines it in the way that it was originally meant when applied to programmers(group) and computer science(group and profession).
That shows I am right on that point as anyone not in those groups don't use those definitions and consider crackers and hackers one and the same. So Jargon file is only de facto to a small group and not the world (unless the world becomes programmers and computer science). Just like everyone doesn't use medical jargon outside nurses and doctors.
2) An easier way to find the other FAQ at http://www.cplusplus.com/faq/ on the home page. Either I'm blind or the link to this FAQ is missing from the front page. I never even knew about it until Duoas posted a link in the forum. Also, I hope that this FAQ will replace the one at http://www.cplusplus.com/info/faq/, as the prior is much more comprehensive and answers the same questions.
I would much rather recommend that people use std::sort().
I honestly appreciate the effort, and I myself have to learn from that page -- but the question is, what place does it have in an FAQ for C++? Cut down on the paraphernalia or change the name from "C++ F.A.Q." to "Applied C++ Tutorial" or something similar.
If LB hates you then you may be in trouble already. I've learned from experience, once one person hates you, it becomes easier to get others to hate you. So with that in mind, a person in the power to ban may hate you and just waiting for a reason to do so ;). Everyone hates me, but I don't care because it is an equal opportunity hate :P.
