My worst developer sin is probably me talking sh*t about programs I could never have done better myself.

"Omg, this is so inefficent!"
"Omg, the ui is so confusing!"
"What kind of idiot would do that?"

...I'm not the only one who does that, am I?

    I'll confess to that one... Looking at something and going "I'm just gonna fucking rewrite this" was an old habit.

    Now any criticism usually comes with caveats, like "in their timeframe with their loose as fuck requirements"

    slightly worse than receiving shit for code you didn't write yourself but it's included in your PR

    I do it regularly. Mainly because I know that if I had the sourcecode and two weeks time I would have solved it.
