I agree. I'm all for rigorous standards of code review, whether I agree with every convention in question or not. However, after the author mentions writing "beep!" instead of explaining an import order convention (as if it were challenging to copy/paste a single sentence a few times) and putting obnoxious gifs in their review, not to mention the self-congratulatory tone of the article, it doesn't make me feel like this is a place where I want to work. Encouraging best practices needn't come at a cost of being blithely pompous.
