in reply to The joys of bad code

Bah, since when do companies write articles? I wrote the article (the link is to my site). BUU did ask my permission before posting ("I'm czth and I approve of this message"). Not all code is from applicants but I think most of it is; I tried to anonymize the code where I thought it necessary to protect the guilty.

For those that are tired of rants, I wrote a more didactic version in response to some comments after I first posted the article (on k5). Standard disclaimer along the lines of "my code isn't always perfect either" goes here, too.

Really, a lot of bad code comes from not refactoring, and whenever I see unfactored sprawling inefficient untidy code I itch to refactor it into something more elegant (and usually smaller). Doubtless my bad code collection will continue to grow.
