How to write maintainable code

How to write maintainable code is the one question that comes up everytime a developer designs a new application.
On this website I found the 'other way around approach' i.o.w. How to write Unmaintainable Code.

Quote from the website:

"if you follow all these rules religiously, you will even guarantee yourself a lifetime of employment, since no one but you has a hope in hell of maintaining the code. Then again, if you followed all these rules religiously, even you wouldn't be able to maintain the code!"

"You don't want to overdo this. Your code should not look hopelessly unmaintainable, just be that way. Otherwise it stands the risk of being rewritten or refactored."

Hahaha, this is funny!
So if you don't follow that rules, your code is maintainable!
