comment Intentional misspellings to avoid reserved words
@GoloRoden I've never heard anyone say they were "uniting" two sets when computing the union. It's just not part of the lingo. "Merge" would be better, but a merge method would still need documentation explicitly stating that it implements union and was renamed for purely technical reasons.

comment Should my source code be in UTF-8?
You're making it seem as if ASCII vs. UTF-8 is a choice. When there are non-ASCII characters in a file, it isn't. When there are only ASCII characters, UTF-8 is ASCII.

comment Should UTF-16 be considered harmful?
I think @Ringding is right, the Python example seems flawed. In Python 2, unicode('𝄞', 'utf-16') interprets the bytes of '𝄞' as a UTF-8 string and then decodes that to UTF-16; that obviously goes wrong.
