in thread Simplifying code (Not obfuscation)

Your post hits many a chord with my newfound current thinking. The response to this post has been phenomenal (IMHO) and massively more beneficial than I ever invisaged.

It seems that by going 'back to basics' my preconceptions and assumptions don't come into play and therefore I get much better responses. Ie, I ask a better question and benefit greatly from doing so.

I have to say that generally I'm not in favour of people asking basic questions (Before anyone comments I recognise that I'm highly intolerant and a hypocrite) if I think they could have got the answer by doing a little reading or thinking themselves. That said I think you have made good comments on the 'basic and genuine' vs 'basic and lazy'. And have caused me to reform my views.
