comment Where does the word “Programming” come from?
@Timwi, I don't know... I don't think the fact that the question works well for one StackExchange site necessarily means it's off-topic for another. I think there can probably be some overlap.

This is a good counter-example to the claim that every question on this site is subjective. (That said, most are.)

comment Do you prefer conciseness or readability in your code?
+1 for not assuming another programmer's lack of knowledge. In the example given, the second option is only less readable if you aren't familiar with the null coalescing operator. I would never write my code based on the assumption that my co-workers don't know the language syntax. Even if they didn't know what ?? means, if I use it and then they learn it, we've both benefited. And it's not like it's hard to type in "?? operator" on msdn.com

Well, those two are for semi-extreme circumstances. Not quite as drastic as the last one.
