What HN used to be above is this stupid pedantry. 300 lines of code is a euphemism for a simple system. That's it. Who gives a shit if the actual system was 800 lines, or even several thousand lines?? The system they made was simple.

Notice how it's a self post? It's not some grand ploy to get more pageviews for a blog. What's bullshit is that half of the comments section is being taken up by this contentless debate. That's the actual poison on HN.
