Sure, we can always find difficult issues - the idea is to find ways to make our code more readable and understandable for whoever has to maintain it.

My style has changed a lot over the passed 44 years of coding and it is still changing as I discover better ways of making my code more reliable and more maintainable.

It's really frustrating, for example, when I am reading someone elses code that makes it impossible to tell a local variable from a class level variable - maybe that does not bother you but it does me.

I certainly welcome any ideas for making my code better; however, not doing the best that I can to let the reader know about the type, scope, and usage of a variable is a non-starter for me.
