Just for counterpoint.
The typical solution to the symbolic reference problems, is: "Use a hash"; but symbolic references use a stash, a symbol table hash.
The only real difference between symbolic references and hashes, is an extra level of indirection.
"Bad code" is only bad code if it is used badly; used correctly, it can be a very useful, and powerful asset.
Blanket bans (on anything) just encourage ignorance.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
