Because it comes back to bite you...

I am so old that I remember when we made printouts of our source code. Several of the printers I used placed the underscore so low down - I guess that it shouldn't interfere with the descenders of lower case letters - that it visually certainly did not tie together the parts making up the identifier.

We even had zebra paper in my first years as a programmer, ane when the underscores from the white lines printed halfway into the top of the grey line, they were very easy to overlook, especially in identifiers starting or ending with an underscore.

So I came to hate underscores.
