I was thinking about the things that bug me and came up with a short list
  1. No comments. I know - let's have a religious war etc, but I find no comments dangerous.
  2. using o as a variable name. In fact using anything that's not sensible. ctx, dr_rfp_ptr, i2
  3. Bad formatting. It's like walking into a house and being unable to sit down because of empty pizza boxes on the couch
  4. Mystery side-effects in code.
  5. Magic numbers
I'm guilty of 2 of these on occasion. What's your list?
cheers
Chris Maunder
