comment Can a scrum master reprimand his team?
To be fair, I read 'yes they can' as a sort of endorsement for doing so too. It doesn't say 'yes they can, but there's a better way' or anything along those lines, though the post eventually seems to suggest as much.

revised Returning different types from one function in a dynamically typed language
This stuff isn't code, so I've removed the code markup and just added emphasis. Also, linked directly to MainMa's answer for posterity.

comment Is fewer lines of code always better?
+1 This is a pretty decent answer and I wonder why it was downvoted.

comment Is fewer lines of code always better?
I was not the downvoter, but I'm guessing it's because error checking would be beside the point here: we're assuming we don't need to check for it in this circumstance. I get you're making a separate point that error-checking adding lines of code itself hints that extra lines of code are fine, but in your first sentences you appear to suggest (for argument's sake, I understand) that these statements should be split up and wrapped in their own try/catch blocks or be checked for failure. But there's no call for it here necessarily. That's massive over-engineering!

comment Why do most programming languages only support returning a single value from a function?
In some languages, you'd return a vector with the X and Y coordinate, and returning any useful value would count as "success" with exceptions, possibly carrying that useful value, being used for failure.
