IMHO a one line answer that is not backed up by references and doesn't show significant research efforts doesn't fit to P.SE. An example (no offense to Thorbjørn who is actually one of the best contributors): How would you know if you've written readable and easily maintainable code?How would you know if you've written readable and easily maintainable code?. Peer code reviews is indeed one of the best ways but this answer doesn't explain why, doesn't give any references, etc. It seems like the contributor didn't have the time to work on the answer. In that case I think that a comment would be more appropriate. Am I right or I'm missing something here?
