| ||Ask HN: How to deal with hostile code review?|

|The small startup I work for is starting to do a refactoring/version 2 of its product, as such the owner is going through the code base and marking areas for improvement.|
He has marked a few parts of the code that I worked on, and one in particular has the comment "//codingstuffs: This code makes me want to cry. Try xxx coding style??"
Now, I will be the first to admit that likely my code sometimes can be a little messier, but the coding style he prefers the pyramid of doom (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyramid_of_doom_(programming)) and I had been taught this was not a good thing.
I'm happy to code to his particular style, but I can't help but feel hurt by the comments. Does anyone have suggestions as to how to separate themselves more from their code/work so that I can not take this as personally?
