More on Todos and Hacks

Todos Todos are a reminder to our future self, or others, that there's something further that can be done in the code. The point of todos should be to get something done sooner rather than later, which unfortunately isn't always the case.
When bitHound presents you with a todo comment, consider finishing the task and getting it out of the way.

Hacks Hack comments are usually left to indicate that the subsequent code is a workaround for a proper implementation. When bitHound presents you with a hack, consider whether or not it has been dealt with already. If it has not been dealt with,
consider improving the way the coding goal is achieved. If the hack has already been improved or solved, remove the hack comment.
