I prefer to not refactor other folks code unless it serves a larger purpose that I am working on because I hate it when that happens to code I wrote. The elegant lambda expression that condensed my method down to one line has now made it impossible to inspect values at different points while debugging. Verbose code has a purpose sometimes, and my style is not necessarily everyone else's style. So, I wish everyone would not refactor code just be cause they can make it "cleaner". "Cleaner" is meaningless.
And those pointless discussions are why I always put a very strict linter in my CI pipeline.
