comment What technologies or techniques senior developers of today should *unlearn*
I would also add the example of a misleading comment, e.g., string ret = ((hours * 60) + minutes).ToString(); // converts hours and minutes into HH:MM format, which I have seen in production code. More comments means more of a chance that they won't be updated when the code is changed. That's not to say, that you shouldn't comment, just that it's another argument as to why you shouldn't leave more comments than you need to.

comment How does the license work for the LGPL open source framework?
Is the code from the LGPL framework statically or dynamically linked into the application you are selling? I.e., is the entire framework code used shipping as a separate DLL or SO?

comment Single statement if block - braces or no?
Even worse is when someone comments out the statement without commenting out the corresponding if check (and yes I've seen this happen)

comment Is CodeIgniter PHP Framework suitable for large ERP or Business Application?
@adietan63 - it's a framework so whether or not it produces good results for end users comes down to what you develop using the framework, not the framework itself. That being said, the two limitations I discussed in my answer make it more difficult (but not impossible) to create quality, maintainable applications using CodeIgniter. Hope that helps!
