If you've justified the addition of a comment in a piece of otherwise sparingly commented code, you can bet your bottom dollar I am going to give it my full attention.

    Yeah, that's why you should always golf your production code, then it gets the most attention from the person maintaining it.

      We were discussing plain English comments (or whatever local lingo). I suppose if I had written 10 paragraphs explaining that, you wouldn't have bothered reading it and therefore wouldn't have replied. Next time I'll know better.
