You disagree: go back.
A true zealot.
Programming is about writing down ideas in a *clear* and *consistent way*,
so that not only the original author is able to read and understand it
after 3 months, but also peers.
According to your silly rule the shortest book on a subject would be the
best. Now why is that false?
Why are Perl golf scripts so hard to understand?
