if you are going to go to silly extremes, you could have gone further.
No, you could not go further.

Golfed code in no way implies reducing functionality. It should still do the same as the original code. It should still pass the test suite.

That's obviously not true when you reduce your program to no code at all.

    Like I said: sarcasm.

    But at least we agree that using golfed code as a counter argument to the axiom: "that less code means less bugs", is a silly extreme.

      You're spending an awful lot of time defending your position before declaring it sarcasm.

      And I'm not agreeing with you on anything here.

        Sorry. I didn't know that it was necessary to declare sarcasm. Most people recognise it when they see it. Hell, I even added a smiley.

        Seems to me your the only one defending an untenable position.

    ...No, you could not go further...

    How about code that hasn't been written yet? Does that have any bugs in it?

      If your car doesn't have an engine, does it have problems running?

        My bicycle works fine without an engine.
