A feature of INTERCAL-72 not documented in the original manual was that it required a certain level of politesse from the programmer. If fewer than 1/5th of the program statements included the PLEASE qualifier, the program would be rejected as insufficiently polite. If more than 1/3rd of them included PLEASE, the program would be rejected as excessively polite.



@neauoire Yep, and in neither case would it tell you why when compilation failed.
