C'mon people, that's the literal definition of a straw-man! _Of course_ "your code isn't self documenting" doesn't mean "no line is ever self-documenting", and _of course_ "write more comments" doesn't mean "comment everything"!


Ideally a comment should provide context around a function or section of code, rather than a “this code does x”. I can read what it does, but code itself doesn’t tell me why.
