Smaller is not *always* better--sometimes, somebody will have to read your code, and some languages (like Perl, TECO, or Lisp's embedded (FORMAT ...) language), which are extremely concise, also look suspiciously like line noise.
Most certainly. I can't imagine anyone running a real community off that script. However, my point was that it was neat to know that you could build a working system in 1kB. I just wanted to add some more functionality.
