I understand code comments is probably a small issue compared to the larger goal that needs to be achieved here and there is probably no real resolution to this.

Opinions abound on both sides of the table, I personally feel writing code comments despite having written clear enough code, is a bit brainless exercise really. Everyone has a bit of ego and everyone wants to feel in control of something in their lives, lead devs/chief architects are more so, therefore in an effort to tacitly assure the lead dev that I am not here to take his job away from him or make him feel stupid, I am going to sprinkle comments where needed. Same goes for coding standards.

Short of e-mailing them the links to dozens of blogs by well known people that agree with me on this, I don't think I can do anything else that can add tangibleness, especially after having had lengthy discussions in which I laid out my points as objectively as I could. I guess some lead devs have a real hard time coping with the possibility that their point of view could be wrong! Smile | :) No one likes to admit their fallibility!
