Quote:
Christopher Tozzi, who does not write code, but just looks at it, said:
Here are some guidelines that are almost universally accepted
... And then demanded that everyone follow guidelines that he prefers, and not follow "almost universally accepted" guidelines that are not to his preference.

As John said, his declaring the almost universally accepted i++ as being "ambiguous" is ridiculous -- it has one and only one meaning, and everyone knows that meaning.

Perhaps this non-coding "writer" should learn how to use a dictionary, before opening his mouth, and focus on doing his own job properly, before bitching at the way professional coders do theirs.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
