Discussion on: Should comments in code be considered failures in coding?

But you agree that different people have different opinions on the readability of the code? And you strive for understanding in the team and you can reach it in the team, but then somebody new comes to the team and you may need to reconsider readability of the code. As well when people do review it is not done by the whole team, but only by the part of the team (depends on the size of the team), which means that part of the team may not consider code easy to read.

Different people have different opinions but there is a middle ground and we strive for that. It shouldn't be acceptable to say "I wrote unreadable code so I wrote a comment to explain it".
