comment Do you prefer conciseness or readability in your code?
The last example is intentionally bad, @user193130, to illustrate a case in which pure brevity leads to undesirable results. That said, avoiding multiple evaluations of a boolean expression for purely performance reasons is silly unless you've profiled your code and found that doing this has a significant effect in some area.

comment Validating data to nest if or not within try and catch
@Skippy: have you had the time to check out Code Review? You might find it useful... But yes, try to always include some information on what you're hoping to accomplish - it makes identifying and evaluating the question much easier for others. Small amounts of irrelevant info can always be removed later.

comment Why must a constructor's call to the superconstructor be the first call?
@Val: your previous comment was deleted because, while you were trying to point out problems with the answer in a reasonable fashion, you got kinda personal. I've corrected your last comment - please try to stick to critiques of the answer itself, not its author.

comment Why aren't macros included in most modern programming languages?
They can be worth their weight in gold when you need a simple syntax for something specific. But yes, they can be - and have been - abused pretty badly. @Dunk
