@stevefrost Oh, Steve - just confuse matters why don't you?
@professorsloth Where large businesses are concerned and different development strategies exist, it rarely is that simple.
Remember, Crockford is just a man.
@gagege I guess my original point is related to a singleton based approach, where you would have a single reference to this. More the point was the generic term that's used in those cases.
Unless you have several different classes described in 1 file, you'd have no need to backtrack through hundreds of lines of code to determine what class the file you're currently in is.
@darkmantiscs If we are to adopt a convention, I personally prefer "self" over "_self", given the concept of private variables (which the underscore denotes) doesn't really hold when creating a reference within individual functions.
@mauris Nothing. That's my point - you should use "self".
