Developers like the idea of automated code review
Do they? Yet the vast majority seem to be reluctant to use linters, even free ones, or even enable aggressive compiler diagnostics. And as anyone who's been paying attention to this aspect of the industry for the last few decades knows, it's quite difficult to sell most organizations on high-quality static- and dynamic-analysis tools for source code, even though those tools have an excellent record at finding common bugs.
As a class, developers do not take criticism of their code well, even (perhaps especially) when it comes from a machine. Nor do they like systems which make latent work (technical debt and lurking maintenance issues) patent. They should, since this would mean better quality and less overall effort; but they do not.
