comment Is it a good practice to use List of Enums?
@WChargin - where did you get C# from? As far as i can tell, the question is language agnostic.

comment Is it a good practice to use List of Enums?
@MatthewRock - no, you are talking about LINKED lists, when the question, and everyone else, is talking about generic List interface.

comment Is it effective to review code in language I don't know?
Really, you have a tool that can distinguish badly named variables from good ones? I'd be reeeeealy interested in seeing one.

comment Why would you store an enum in DB?
@MichaelT - it may be an issue in, say, a financial system. It sure as hell is not an issue when it comes to gender.

comment Should one check for every little error in C?
@Damien_The_Unbeliever - especially since stdout can be redirected to a file, or not even exist depending on the system. stdout is not a "write to console" stream, it's usually that, but it doesn't have to be.

comment Almost every reported bug is a high-priority bug
That is not a normal process. Clients have no business interacting with developers on that level, if that is happening, management has completely and utterly failed to do its job.

comment Does C# 6.0's new null-conditional operator go against the Law of Demeter?
LoD is pretty useless "best practice" anyway.

comment Why are the sizes of programs so large?
@8bittree - yes, but too keep the visual quality while increasing resolutions and screen sizes you need larger assets and/or better optimising code.

comment What is the usefulness of private variables?
@corsiKa - on the contrary, I'd say that a setter which does nothing except this.x = x isn't a setter, it's junk code. To be a proper setter, it would need to do something more than that.

comment Singleton or instantiate everytime I use?
@DavidArno - your link is to another SO post which is even less authoritative. And is disputed right away in the first comment. Also, the whole "antipattern" thing is based on authority, to call it a fallacy now is pretty silly.

comment Singleton or instantiate everytime I use?
@DavidArno - I'm calling the "singletons always bad" attitude, without explaining why, even though for example Google uses them, blind adherence. If you disagree, feel free to write a good answer explaining why singletons are always bad and why Google's code is full of antipatterns.

comment Singleton or instantiate everytime I use?
@DavidArno - that is strictly your opinion on singletons. On the other hand, nearly every large software company programming in Java uses them, so they obviously have their place. Both blind adherence to "singletons bad" and "singletons good" are cargo cults. You just seem to be in the former instead of later.

comment Singleton or instantiate everytime I use?
@DavidArno - calling singletons anti-pattern is cargo cult programming.

comment What's the use of .Any() in a C# List<>?
@SargeBorsch - only if you prefer Heskel/functional naming, which most people don't.

comment Reject pull request or accept incorrect code?
@AndyBrown - not necessarily. To me it sounds that colleague agrees that it is low quality, he just thinks that deadlines come first.

comment Should we define types for everything?
@JDB - no, it doesn't. Not even similar.

comment Why is base-for-all-objects discouraged in C++
@gbjbaanb - no, you only need the abominable bit shift operator overload. Because that makes fucking sense.

comment Review before or after code commit, which is better?
@MikeBrown - while I agree with your arguments here, that linked "wiki" is one of the worst things I have ever read about pair programing. All the objections and concerns were hand waved away, those who have doubts about it basically called asocial retards, and management insulted for not wanting to apply a radical new methodology to their process without any empirical evidence that it actually conveys business advantages. It's on par with YouTube comments for it's toxicity. I have no idea how anyone thinks this is a good thing for pair programming, and I say that as someone who likes it.

comment single for-loop runtime explanation problem
I always understood tilde to mean approximate, not proportional. Essentially, ~ is a shorthand for .

comment Is splitting up a function into several inner functions an anti-pattern?
This doesn't even attempt to answer the question at hand. The question is about inner functions, not splitting large functions/methods into multiple smaller ones.
