I really struggle reading Ruby code that overuses the 'unless' conditional. Please don't do it.

The only people that don’t like “unless” are either: A) Old school programmers, which I can understand. B) Blog followers, the people that let the hip blogs choose their mindset. I’ve personally thought, from back in my C/C++ days, that “if not” sounded like the most obscure piece of dog shit I’ve ever had to read. Not that its hard to understand, but the fact that I never say “If not” in plain English. News Flash people: Unless IS If not… and if you see it, you should think that way if you have a problem. Now I can jive with your rules above, but people need to settle down and understand that Unless is just one of many things that makes Ruby so much of a pleasure to use for English speaking programmers.
