DZ Discuss: How Do YOU Deal with Bad Code?

DZone wants to know how you've handled teammates' bad code on your own projects.

After being told to comment our code and taught how to deal with a coworker's bad code, I wanted to know how often our users had to deal with that guy on their team who makes simple mistakes or makes your lives harder. Was it for a personal project or enterprise software? Did the suboptimal coder get better?

I also wanted to know what advice you'd give DZone members who are going through the same situation, to avoid any mistakes you may have made yourselves.

So let us know: how have you dealt with a teammate's bad code, and was the right way to go? Let us know in the comments!
