Well, different people, different art of coding, I guess. But this does not influence any correct way in the context. We cannot change this, but we should keep this in mind here on the mailing list, I suggest.

I wouldn't completely agree on this. I guess we can compare music with language here. If you want to learn a language, you first have to learn the basic vocabulary. Of course, you then learn by speaking (=playing your instrument). But if you don't keep up with the basics, you can not get on a "higher level". Therefor, musical theory helps you not only to get better, but also to have more fun, because if you know more, it's more easy to express your feelings/thoughts via this way.  Just my cents.
