It's finally occurred to me that when it is a pattern, it is by definition inefficient and counter productive.

It became clear as I am surrounded by guys swearing by pattern this, pattern that!
If it's a good technique why do you need to impose it? Shouldn't it self evidently win everyone heart?
Nope because patterns are more like religion, used stubbornly in spite of contrary evidence.

I rather prefer the term technique. Technique is something you should learn first. Then you use it or not, whether it helps you or not. And its need is self evident. If it's not obviously needed there is no need to use or impose it either.
Plus one can improve upon a technique, whereas one cannot touch the holy pattern until a new software best seller fad comes along! Unsure | :~


Remark maybe it has nothing to do with pattern but more to do with stupid people imposing their rote learning on me... Cry | :((
