If someone is asking me to dumb down my code because others don't know the language well enough (or sometimes aren't smart enough) to read it, then stuff 'em! Why should I adapt when making the others adapt would be much better in every aspect? They get to be smarter, my code stays as smart as it was, and most importantly, I don't have to do any extra work

I'm not against documenting or using no comments at all, but just not for basic language features, as David said.
