Is it OK to cancel?
The problem of the ambiguous “confirm a cancel” dialogue box is still with us in 2011.
“So, do I click Cancel to cancel or OK to cancel.”
“You click OK to cancel. Cancel cancels the cancel.”
“Shouldn’t I click Cancel to cancel?”
“No, Cancel cancels the cancel, click OK, OK.”
“OK I clicked OK to cancel.”
“You wanted to cancel!?! You should have clicked Cancel. Now you’ve cancelled it. That’s not OK.”
Reminds me of a great scene in Intolerable Cruelty (you’ll need to turn up the volume).
Moral: Check the “Do not ask me again” box.
