in thread to distinguish between [Anonymous Monk]s in a thread, brand 'em
And as long as you remain in the room you remain "branded" as "Anonymous Monk # x". Wherever you move in the room, you will still be recognized (for a very weak form of recognition) as "Anonymous Monk # x". Hence you are recognizable and whatever you said can be related to "you", even if this "you" will disappear as soon as you leave the room.
A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
