These are reasonable complaints ;)
And yes, I find bugs in my code with static testing as well, although
(being a cat) I did my own. So it embeds my opinions. (One reason why
wheel-rewriting is so bracing and fun)
I like reading all of these opinions. It's fun on a summer day, while grilling...
Big, complex ideas require a process to develop, a language to communicate them and a structure to hold them together. Part of the art of the process is applying a thoughtful style to the presentation.
I believe that the culture and practice of coding would be enhanced if it were imbued with more of that attitude.
There is a technical problem to be solved.
There is an art to solving it and in expressing its solution. Part of that art is style, which if done well, can contribute a great deal to its meaning.
Hot headed opinions are super fun, though. So there's that.
 Rush is the greatest band ever.
