Professional developer and software architect. Yes, people pay me for this stuff; don't expect the same level of service for free.
I like code that's explicit and well-structured more than code that's clever and concise. That probably goes with my tendency to use more words than I need to in sentences like this one which is still going on for some reason.
Developer in PHP, and occasionally a developer of PHP (although my C skills have plenty of room for improvement). Yes, PHP has its flaws, no I do not want to hear your childish jokes about those flaws.
I tend to downvote answers that give a literal code solution to the problem posed with no accompanying explanation, as they miss the opportunity to teach people how to solve the problem themselves next time.
If I'm arguing with you after 23:00 UTC, please tell me to go to bed!
