Hrm. I agree, I had not intentionally mis-formatted yours, I had simply cut&paste what I had several times :) ah cut&paste, I love thee and yet thy use doth cause me pain.

I dislike the return - unless structure, as I said, I have a bad memory, I prefer my condition first, so that I can compare my mental state against that and continue or discard the block depending on the result. If I have to read the operation first, I then have to remember what that was when I reach the condition :)

if (you're using formatting to line one up) { you have to use formatti +ng to line the other up as well }; {I think I can stop here} unless (another example is used).

You're not kidding me :) you really do write your code like you write your english :) :)

For reference, this is how I write the same thing in english:

Regarding this particular example, if you're using formatting to line +one up you have to use formatting to line the other up as well.

Thats highly amusing. Notice that the way I do it, I've put a guard clause in at the start of the sentence, effectively:

if (!this particular example) { return } if (you're using formatting to line one up) { you have to use formatti +ng to line the other up as well }

Thats kinda cool :)
