Hmmmm. I would debate using my finest argument:
"It fucking depends."
ltlian11808dThis is one of those things that is funny to see go full circle as you grow your skills.
You start out writing garbage, then you learn enough to do it "properly" and struggle to get anything done. Then you start learning to balance "cheap" vs "good enough" and you write garbage again - but adequate, production ready garbage which is as maintainable as it needs to be and done on time.
Lor-inc23018dThere are use cases when duplication means that the number of slightly altered copies is exponential to some value. I doubt there is any abstraction worse than that. Therefore it fukin depends.
