Re: [vox] code sleuths needed - cheating suspected

I sure hope you take credit off for lack of comments and poor formatting.
My pet peeve is that the people teaching people to code ignore the fact that
the code should be readable and heavily commented.  True, it's overkill for
one liner's but once the habit is learned (to not comment) it's really hard
to break.

Then, as an employer, I have to baby sit these self-proclaimed code gods who
think their code is perfect without comments and everyone else is a fool..

It's been my take (after taking many programming courses) that commenting
and layout is not on very many professors agenda.  I personally think that
it's because they've never had to find a bug at 3am in some X year old
legacy code..
