What computer scientist would be so stupid that he couldn't figure out how
to write a "For Loop" for adding up a bunch of numbers?

That's the first assignment in computer science 101.

Why would he need to copy somebody else's code?

There is absolutely no excuse for hiding the source code.

It's not like Colonel Sanders' secret recipe of herbs and spices, for
Pete's sake; it's just addition, our common inheritance from Count Dracula
on Sesame Street!
