Thanks for the reply. I agree with tests and I'm a big proponent of them :).

I also agree that if a comment would be useful and save someone a headache, it should be added. My point was only that comments should be the last resort compared to code that's obvious and sensible so it doesn't need comments.

I won't be adding it to the article for now because I don't see it as part of the fundamentals. More like a tip, that also needs the appropriate warning of only using comments as a last resort.

Having said that, I really appreciate that you took the time to make a suggestion. Thank you.
