in reply to Why Create Coding Standards and Perform Code Reviews?

I'd like to comment on one of question-answer pairs here, on "Why Perform Code Reviews? - Enforce coding standards". That's the enforcing part that I particularly dislike.

Color me anarchist, but when some, well, as you warily put "strong personality" manager hammers down how I shall code, "enforcing the teamwork" if I may, then a good half from the joy that comes from programming is gone. Well at least in my case.

I understand that my experiences do not disproof the validity of your points. But emotional responses aren't really provable, and mine currently are such that when I hear "coding standard" I flinch.
