  • what is your thought on ###### lines to separate sections of code?

    I find it ugly and distracting but have no other good logical argument against it.
    • The things which separate sections of code are called "subroutines".

      I'm more and more finding myself in the XP camp that comments mean complexity; if the code was simple and everything well named it won't need a comment. Complexity should be walled off into its own routine. That means if you find your code is complex enough to warrant a comment, or a separator, then you should consider an extract routine refactoring and a good routine name instead.
