See here... I can see we disagree.
You did prove that not everybody share my view which, in hindsight, I perfectly knew that already. In fact I mention those such as you, it's the nervous crowd.

if you must know your argument is lost on me (and on my previous bosses too) if they want me to continuously modify something by only adding code, and never remove... well they should not have hired me.

In fact you'll be please to know I have been fired a few times for cause related to that. Since never trimming down code that is an obstacle to my well being is.. almost physically painful to me and, well, I disagreed with others too.

In fact, during my job interviews now, so that I find compatible employers, when they ask my strong point, I tell them I am good at deleting code (and keeping the functionality).

And before you say that perhaps I should "learn" (to live with mess) I tried.. but this is too at odd with the desire to learn and improve that I also cultivate at work.

And since you mention that so called argument that "beautiful code is subjective", doing the same thing with half the number of classes, method and line of code is 100% objective so I am not convinced by your so called subjective superiority.
