    Great. This is even worse than the Alan Cooper classic:

    "Do you want to cancel this reservation?"
    [ OK ] [ Cancel ]

    (Alan Cooper is the original designer of Visual Basic and the author of
    "About Face: The Essentials of User Interface Design," which every
    developer of UIs should read even if they don't agree with a single
    thing he says.)

    Every dialog box that asks a yes/no question should have Yes and No
    buttons, *never* OK and Cancel.
