"Let's define some new syntax for it"

It never ceases to amaze that people write guides where you already need to understand the thing being explained to understand the explanation.

Comment your code ffs

Can you please make your substantive points without fulminating? We all know how provocative the annoying bits can be, but if you translate that into venting in the threads, it compounds into the sort of culture we really don't want here. Since that outcome is unfortunately the default, we have to make some effort to avoid it.


Hi! Author here. I can't find that quote in the article, but if you could explain which part in particular is problematic for you I'd be happy to try and explain it here. (And perhaps even improve the blog post.)

That's the curse of knowledge in action. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curse_of_knowledge
