Me today at class, doing a group work, while suddenly I saw my colleague’s code looking very odd.

Me : “Why is your code like that?”
Her : “Like what?”
Me : “Its not spaced correctly... look its way over there”
Her : “Oh well, I just like it like that, its my style”
Me “...”

And im just like, if she post her code at SO, she wouldve been eaten alive...

    @filthyranter she said she likes to write it like that... i dont know man... i tried telling her but she wouldnt take my advice

    @dotPy My classmates usually write very odd code too, weird style, weird logic.
    I don't like helping them.

    @filthyranter I told my classmates: do it like this and otherwise I wont help you.

    "but the teacher said we had to do it like this"

    Well do you want me or the teacher to help you?

    @filthyranter me too but i was their group leader so...yeah i have to

    @dotPy If you're the group leader, you can enforce code quality by enforcing intendation rules and similar rules to what the Linux kernel disallows.

    @filthyranter yeahh, i can just change it all later if i want to, its harder to help humans than coding, especially if they think they dont need it

    The formatting doesn't matter. If she likes it then cool. We all have our own preferences, just because hers is unique doesn't make it wrong.

    @Michelle unique doesn’t mean good, if she wants to write good. No hate on her what so ever, but if she was on SO, people would not like it

    @irene lets just say its unique, but bot in the good way

    @Codex404 I do exactly the same, bro!

    @dotPy
    Yes, but you're not SO, are you? It doesn't matter if she gets hate. People in SO are nothing but conceited jerks, so who cares what they think. They won't kill her for it.

    Sometimes I don't understand why people criticize others for their preferences.

    @Codex404 thought that at first. But i goggled it either xD

    @Michelle if it's a group work, legibility\understandability(it's correct 🤔?) standards should be applied. You don't expect others will like "all" your formatting preferences. On the other side I just can't be bothered about this issue anymore, I leave the formatting to the auto-formatter 😉

    That’s how one of my classmates was. He loved having 5 new lines between each line. It made his code VERY hard to read

    @Michelle is the voice of reason. Listen to her.

    (Unless the indentation was truly horrible or missing)
