Literally tabs vs. spaces. The joke is everywhere, and the people taking stances have clearly never used find+replace.

    I remember that silicon valley episode where Richard got really salty over tabs vs spaces, and his dev "girlfriend" preferred spaces. My two mind bogglies was when Richard didn't realize that his editor is probably macroing spaces when he pressed the tab key, and his girlfriend was actually pressing spaces manually like she was a month into her freshman year.

    i agree, since tabs are obviously and without diacussion the objective correct choice. having to have an argument about something this obvious is dumb, yes.

    Find+replace makes your VCS explode, unless you have a consensus which style you commit.

    @Midnigh-shcode Not to mention they are configurable per dev without actually changing the code.

    Tabs are best because they easily accommodate people who have bad eyesight.

    Increasing font size and reducing tab size == glorious.

    Increasing font size when spaces are used is a nightmare.

    All this bullshit about tabs vs spaces is completely unnecessary. Simply Ctrl + Shift + F for auto refactor, done.!
