In computer science and related disciplines, considered harmful is a phrase popularly used in the titles of diatribes and other critical essays (there are at least 65 such works). It was popularized by Edsger Dijkstra's letter Go To Statement Considered Harmful, published in the March 1968 Communications of the ACM (CACM), in which he criticized the excessive use of the GOTO statement in programming languages of the day and advocated structured programming instead. The original title of the letter, as submitted to CACM, was A Case Against the Goto Statement, but CACM editor Niklaus Wirth changed the title to the now immortalized Go To Statement Considered Harmful. Regarding this new title, Donald Knuth quipped that "Dr. Goto cheerfully complained that he was always being eliminated."

edsger w. dijkstra's note in the march 1968 "communications of the acm", "goto statement considered harmful", fired the first salvo in the structured programming wars. amusingly, the acm considered the resulting acrimony sufficiently harmful that it will (by policy) no longer print an article taking so assertive a position against a coding practice. in the ensuing decades, a large number of both serious papers and parodies have borne titles of the form "x considered y". the structured-programming wars eventually blew over with the realisation that both sides were wrong, but use of such titles has remained as a persistent minor in-joke.

전산학이나 비슷한 분야에서 …의 해로움(... considered harmful)은 혹독한 비평을 할 때 제목으로 사용되는 유명한 문구이다. "...의 해로움"은 1968년 3월 CACM에 출판된 에츠허르 데이크스트라의 〈GOTO문의 해로움〉에서 처음 나왔다. 여기서 그는 프로그래밍 언어에서 GOTO문을 지나치게 사용하는 점을 비판하고 구조적 프로그래밍을 해야 한다고 주장하였다. 그 당시, 구조적 프로그래밍에 대한 논의는 활발하지 않았지만, 글의 제목으로 ‘…의 해로움’이라는 문구는 자주 사용되었다. 이 문구는 실제로는 데이크스트라가 쓴 것이 아니라 ACM 편집자인 니클라우스 버트가 쓴 것이다.

adj. [very common] Edsger W. Dijkstra's note in the March 1968 "Communications of the ACM", "Goto Statement Considered Harmful", fired the first salvo in the structured programming wars (text at http://www.acm.org/classics). Amusingly, the ACM considered the resulting acrimony sufficiently harmful that it will (by policy) no longer print an article taking so assertive a position against a coding practice. (Years afterwards, a contrary view contrary view was uttered in a CACM letter called, inevitably, "`Goto considered harmful' considered harmful'"'. In the ensuing decades, a large number of both serious papers and parodies have borne titles of the form "X considered Y". The structured-programming wars eventually blew over with the realization that both sides were wrong, but use of such titles has remained as a persistent minor in-joke (the `considered silly' found at various places in this lexicon is related).
