The Truest Comment

by in Representative Line on

Usually, when posting a representative line, it’s a line of code. Rarely, it’s been a “representative comment”.

Today’s submitter supplied some code, but honestly, the code doesn’t matter- it’s just some method signatures. The comment, however, is representative. Not just representative of this code, but honestly, all code, everywhere.
