"They probably shouldn't have done it"
That explains a lot of bad code I've come across in my life.
@dragonmantank @derickr @Beryllium9 @syntaxseed It seems like just because a thing can be abused doesn't mean it should not be a thing. Some objects lend themselves to intuitive meaning of + or some other operator, others don't. If readability would suffer, then they probably shouldn't have done it.
