Recently started using js without semicolons...

Personal opinion but I think semicolons do make the code look ugly

    And now you can get on your high horse about how no one is a real JavaScript developer until they understand ASI. 😉

    You can open your code to some weird, hard to find bugs by doing this. The interpreter is going to insert them for you and it doesn't always guess right

    I love semicolons, curly brackets and parentheses.

    But, how you minify?

    Semicolon was bestowed upon us by the heavens. You should ask for forgiveness for your blasphemous comment

    @Cruiser you say this, and yet in all my time coding semi-colon-less javascript I've never come across one of these mysterious bugs.

    I do too, caught me once only, an array followed by a parenthesis on the next line. Apart from that, be sure to use a preprocessor or transpiler and everything will be fine

    Or at least use coffescript to transpile it to js.

    I want my JS to look as much like C as possible.

    While i do agree, i literally had a problem with a missing semicolon today--mind you, i knew exactly where i missed it and fixed it in 5 seconds, but all I'm saying is that leaving them out can cause much avoidable grief
