I don't know what are you talking about.
Are you thinking that you are able to distinguish every code that anyone could write and know if it is better that the others, or if it is a blatant copy of a previous one?
I can't even believe that your schema of a -> b is not really refering to the one that Lacan and Laing used to describe the structure of an aggresive pattern of relationship.
I use to consider lucky when someone rewrites the code of those really experts in perl in some more simple words. Should I downvote them because they are 'simply' (notice the word simply) rewriting others original code?
Everybody has the right to evolve at their own pace, don't you think so?
Consider that not everybody in these forums has the luck of only worry of their competence to obtain a better paid job.
Some people are living in a very troublesome (perhaps non English) environment. And are clever enough to find some time and predisposition to atend to these great site so that they could some day overcome their pairs.
So, don't expect everybody to be like merlyn :) (4 example).
