"I see 100 copy/pasted...."
There is the well known rule of three.... Which this or similar software *would be able to pick up on*, and thus pass your code review on that measure.
"Don't EVER write the same code over and over."
Soo, by your logic we can only open 1 file, or only have 1 AJAX request, etc.
I get your point about novel stuff requiring more brain cells, but yet another chart for management with tweaked parameters is not it. Yet another first person shooter is not novel. Yet another RTS is not novel. Yet another text editor is not novel - trying to deny that these tasks are not "programming" comes across as outright snobbery.
How many careers have been spent entirely
re-inventing the wheel re-implementing duplicate features in a competitors product?
Sidenote: Do you *really* remember and understand how to do stuff, if you're only allowed to do it once?
