Definitely Josef! Like I said in the article, both my thumbs are pointing to myself. You are right. We, developers, have released plenty of undocumented, uncommented code into the wild. Hence the symptom. And the problem is, most of the time code copied from SO will forever remain uncommented because 2 out of 3 times the developer has very shallow understanding of what’s in the code and will prefer not to document it, even if the intention is initially there. You’re completely right, plenty of blame to go around, unfortunately.
