With respect to StackOverflow

I believe there's great value to short, clear and "to the point" answers, telling the user exactly which direction he should be moving. It is okay to add an answer repeating what was already said if it has more concise and better wording. Like with Google Search, think of reducing the time it taskes to get the satisfied reader off the answer page as quickly as possible.

comment Which language features are considered harmful?
"fool-proofness" has no value? Every manager knows he will have morons or drunk programmers working on his code at some point.
