Ooh I’m definitely gonna use this line of yours:

“that's a good approach to the direct problem, but how would you extend this”

Thank you so much for your response. I think choosing my battles is the hardest part of being a lead/senior dev. It’s great to get feedback from others. :)

I've had devs in code reviews that are grateful for the advice, but others that thank you for the input but know better. Sometimes if the impact is minimal and the bug reversible I've let code to go through that isn't great so that the person learns from it. I wouldn't recommend that for every problem though!!!

Yea absolutely As you pointed out, it’s really tough the draw the line between code that needs to be corrected and which one can slide. But I think that the fact that devs like us try to think about he distinction at all makes us better servant leaders. So congrats on being a thoughtful dev! :)

Thanks and congrats to you too!
