comment What's a good term for source code that could theoretically still run, but is purposefully not?
@SantiBailors You assert condescension in my answer; there is none. The question said This code is still there, and could theoretically work, but it never will because it's inaccessible. The verb clutter means crowd (something) untidily; fill with clutter. I maintain that the word fits very, very well with the asked-for question.

My experience is that no one ever goes back and purposefully removes or reintegrates such code. YMMV.

comment What does “…you would rather we have the meeting…” mean?
I use that form all the time. Your example sounds more like "Let us know if you would especially like use to have a meeting..." which has a completely different connotation.
