WTF? By definition, people are the *only* judge of readability.¹
I happen to be an excellent judge of whether a given block of code is
readable to me.
OTOH, if you mean is that I'm a bad judge of what makes code readable to
you, and that you're a bad judge of what makes code readable to me, then
I agree. :-)
¹ Well, okay, compilers will tell you that your code is unreadable, but
they're known to be fairly pedantic.
