Like many of us. How many articles on naming is there on ? probably a lot!
Which is why foo and bar should be banned. Good practices on naming right from the start and everywhere

I grew very frustrated recently with a documentation where they used “foo bar” a lot and started wondering where these nonsensical words came from 😓 maybe we should write an extension that replaces metasyntactic variables with ones that have some logical relationship to each other ¯_(ツ)_/¯
