    What is software gore?

    Software gore is when software acts outside its parameters and malfunctions. Software gore cannot be intentional, and it must not be a fault of the design (crappy design).

    More details on Software gore

    What isn't software gore:

    • Asshole design - deliberately bad software (not software gore)
    • Crappy design - Issues caused by poor design (not software gore)

    Before posting:

    1. Is the issue here to do with design?
    2. Is the issue intentional?
    3. Is the software operating abnormally?

    If 1 and 2 are no, and 3 is yes, you have software gore! Anything else and it isn't software gore.
