"Pseudocode can be used to some extent to aid the maintenance
process. However, pseudocode that is highly detailed -
approaching the level of detail of the code itself - is not of
much use as maintenance documentation. Such detailed
documentation has to be maintained almost as much as the code,
thus doubling the maintenance burden. Furthermore, since such
voluminous pseudocode is too distracting to be kept in the
listing itself, it must be kept in a separate folder. The
result: Since pseudocode - unlike real code - doesnt have to be
maintained, no one will maintain it. It will soon become out of
date and everyone will ignore it. (Once, I did an informal
survey of 42 shops that used pseudocode. Of those 42, 0 [zero!],
found that it had any value as maintenance documentation."

Design", Yourdon Press (c) 1988

First as to speech. That privilege rests upon the premise that
there is no proposition so uniformly acknowledged that it may not be
lawfully challenged, questioned, and debated. It need not rest upon
the further premise that there are no propositions that are not
open to doubt; it is enough, even if there are, that in the end it is
worse to suppress dissent than to run the risk of heresy. Hence it
has been again and again unconditionally proclaimed that there are
no limits to the privilege so far as words seek to affect only the hearers
beliefs and not their conduct. The trouble is that conduct is almost
always based upon some belief, and that to change the hearers belief
will generally to some extent change his conduct, and may even evoke
conduct that the law forbids.
