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.

[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
[perldigious]: "for how I roll"... ahhh, I see what you did there stevieb.
