comment moving from development to quality assurance
Thank you! I'm not thinking of it as a downgrade. I think closer analogy is going from writing code to pure management -- nobody talks about that as a downgrade, right?

@BryanOakley I didn't mean it that way. More of less pressure to learn new technologies way.

comment Beginner's guide to writing comments?
I think small comments to improve speed of code reading a very helpful and will always be. I don't fully buy the "stale comment" reasoning, even if they are stale, they would have historic value. I used to work on a code base which occasionally had detailed comments here and there and never was I really bitten by the comment being out of date problem.

I think we are quickly moving to a world where people don't comment any more. For better of (more likely) for worse. Agile.
