Any argument over coding style that last more than 2 minutes is a stupid argument.

    @JustThat there is a point where that opinion says more about your coding habits than discussions about them

    @FrodoSwaggins I have been on both sides of this issue. I've worked for places where form > function and others where the opposite was true. Neither is fun.

    The point I was flippantly trying to make is this: There should be a well understood, agreed upon style guide or set of guidelines so there aren't any arguments. Additionally, the guidelines shouldn't be so tight as to make developers have to spend an inordinate amount of time assuring their working code fits the style guidelines.

    Arguments simply shouldn't happen except between the people designing the style. I've seen wars end quicker. 😉
