DRY does more harm than good.

(Yes, that is deliberately bait-y, there's a lot more nuance to it in reality.)

 

This is a safe space for being a bit bait-y as long as everyone is self aware enough. 😁

 

For everything that goes beyond one code base, I’m in. DRY at module, service or system level has a lot of serious disadvantages, the biggest of them is creating dependencies.
