Joel's comments on SOLID Principles.

My knee-jerk reaction:

I think Joel is over-reacting to what he heard. I would need to listen to the Hanselman podcast first to know for sure, but at least in my practice of SOLID, I frequently do not code things out to letter of the law in obedience to SOLID, but I will make note of where I smell a violation with code comments, so when I come back through there later, I can know that if I need to enhance what's going on there, I'm going to need to revisit the design so I don't continue on in the path of the violation and have to suffer that fate.

I'm hearing Joel preach YAGNI and I think Uncle Bob would agree.
