Comment: Re:Compactness and Readability (Score 1) 295

What is missing is the word 'design'. You may comment why you made a design (or write a paper on it). You may understand the design by reading the code. If you don't it is either too complex (because there is a possibility to write the same functionality with the same complexity with easier-to-read code) or you need to explain the design for it.
