Seriously, did you ever proofread newspaper articles? When something has been written too 'nicely', that may lead to readers believing that they already know what the article is about without actually reading it. It may actually help when a little more mental effort is required to understand a text.

When style is consistent, code will look familiar at first sight
And that's exactly not what I would want.

Quote:
When I see code that's not properly formatted or otherwise inconsistent I immediately assume the developer is lacking in skill and/or professionality and I'm usually right.
How do you think I feel about someone who screams bloody murder over something that's obviously not important to me. Smile | :)

It's really easy to keep code consistent, especially with today's tools, and it saves a lot of effort when reading it so why not just do it?
Please, tell me all about it. My boss must have lived in China in a previous life. He reformats every XAML so that every attribute in a tag gets its own line and indents everything with just two spaces. The whole thing becomes miles long and with all that scrolling I constantly lose sight of where something begins or ends. The other way around, when I reformat it so that I can see the forrest for all the trees again, he gets similar problems. Here decade old habits collide and there just is no middle ground.

Poor Sander, how much Cool Aid did they give you to drink? :-?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
