This question asks, how do you flip a boolean in C++? The answer, of course, is to use the single-character built-in operator made for doing exactly that.
Now, that's a perfectly good answer to a neophyte's question, but I'm willing to bet that at least 99.44% of C/C++ programmers are familiar with the
! operator, so why did this answer receive 78 upvotes and a bounty of +500?
Seriously, I'm not here to complain about the bike shed problem. I'm really curious whether I'm missing some kind of "inside" joke. Enlighten me, please!
