Maybe we should all stop adding comments to code...

Jesse Liberty had an interesting post that starts like this:
I recently imposed on myself the constraint of coding without comments. Why?
  • Comments rust faster than code, even when you’re careful
  • Well written code can be read, and comments are annoying footnotes
  • Comments make for lazy coding
I've been trying to do this for a little while now. I wasn't so sure about this at first but the more and more I do it the better I like it.
