One of the tasks of a programmer is to manage complexity.
I like to manage complexity by breaking down the complexity into classes and methods, and keep those methods small AND simple. I know that short doesn't have to mean simple. See Attribute::Property. I also know that simple doesn't have to mean short. But more often than not, they have everything to do with eachother.
Well, the head-in-the-sand tactic is a common defense of personal opinion.
Personal study has shown that the sand is nice and warm.
