    @aceface What's "bikeshedding"?

    TLDR; people have opinions about trivial things because its easy to understand. Not so with complex things, because they dont understand them.

    So, short code reviews get lots of comments because it's easier to pick them apart than longer code needing review

    @aceface Interesting... never heard the term before. Not really intuitive but that's probably just a language/region thing. Bikeshedding where I'm from would involve romantic liaisons!! 😆

    But that aside, I have problems with the term. Everybody forms opinions on subjects even if they don't understand them. Especially if they don't understand them. Problem is they then get evangelical and they haven't a notion what they're talking about. Sorry for taking the thread on a tangent.
