This would all be way easier if we would just throw everything away and build it ourselves.
When was the last time you've heard someone say this or even said it yourself? I definitively heard this at least a thousand times. What I observed, though, is that this sentiment usually comes from people who recently joined a new team or a new company. Do these people bring fresh ideas that make them see issues where others are already blinded? Or are they the ones who are missing something and, therefore, think that a rewrite will produce a better result?
