You have to grant some grace to blog posts trying to demonstrate software architecture issues. Neither you nor I nor anybody else would read the blog post if it had a realistic 10,000 line example. No software architecture issue truly manifests at blog-sample sizes, because software architecture just isn't an issue in the dozen-line range.

(And that one person proving me wrong and reading the 10,000 lines would then proceed to nitpick endlessly on yet more details irrelevant to the blog post's point....)

Aside from the flaws of his counter-example, he’s trying to argue in support of a technique that he gives no example of whatsoever. He simply states that his preferred solution would handle the inherent complexity better than this.
