Re: I like Python and C

Then avoid SE. Simples!

If your code performs the same over multiple lines as a one liner then ignore them. If the one liner is more efficient then suck it up and learn the art and zen of 1 line code.

Personally I hate "short hand" code and the syntactic sugar that is introduced to support it. Its just an excuse to act elitist, make things obscure to noobs and a modern variant of not commenting your code. If it introduces new functionality or more speed or more safety then great. If its elitist ego wanking then f*ck off. </thus endeth my rant>
