I agree with him: patterns are generally a mistake. They are a "hammer" for most of the people who use it: every problem "looks like a nail", or can be twisted and bent to resemble a nail enough to apply the pattern.

They can be useful - but more often they are misapplied and that makes them worse than useless as far as I'm concerned.
