So maybe we should shut up and accept that Python Is, After All, Doing The Right Thing?


Strawman.


If your attitude is that "Noone should keep on critizising my language of choice!", then maybe you should search for another language.


Ad hominem and straw man.


you think assigning semantics to use of whitespace, you should take a look at the Whitespace language


Strawman. Whitespace makes the prose easier to read, it's like a foil.


Nothing related to indentation has any semantics in the C class of languages, so pretending that they are similar is a complete misunderstanding.


Either a strawman or you're really really stupid. My point is that everyone who writes good C indents their code blocks. It's almost incredible to me that you could fail to understand that, but looking at how your post opened I figured I'd give you the benefit of the doubt.


A week or two ago, someone posted an April 1st proposal from Bjarne Strostrup (I am assuming that it really was written by him), a proposal about extending the operatior definitinions of C++, to allow operators to be defined for whitespace. He goes on to propose operator definitions for lack of whitespace. Sometimes, I suspect that Python addicts never noticed the publication date.


What relevance does that have to anything? Did I say that C++ should do away with braces and use indentation instead?
