Trouble is, one man's "significant advantage" is another's "too clever by half".
All too often "clever code" is used as a synonym for "code I do not understand", and if you do not understand the code, then you almost certainly cannot perceive its advantages.
I like simple. A lot. But even agreeing a definition of simple is anything but. For many, 'simple code' means step-wise and verbose--the explicit detailing of all intermediates--missing that concise & implicit code can simplify through the omission of extraneous intermediaries.
to not write clever code just for the sake of clever code.
"for the sake of", is there a more emotive, subjective, allusory phrase in our lexicons?
