    Writing 'Unmaintainable' code is nearly impossible anymore.

    Writing software for internet almost requires some form of maintenance as time goes on.

    If you write software for say SERP checking, you have to maintain it to keep up with the constant changes of google.

    Or with general frameworks.


    It's a good share as a whole, but pointless.

    Look at what type of forum you're posting on, then see why I said what I said.

    I think maybe you haven't seen enough 3rd party code :) Especially with old PHP projects, it can be a nightmare.

    There are two types of workers, essential and necessary.

    Essential - You need them to get the job done
    Necessary - You can't do the job without them

    This is a doozy for all those who didn't have english as a first language.
