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[1].
