This is one of the many reasons why I love Go's pragmatism. gofmt is the end of all this kind of silly unproductive arguments.

The sad thing is that apparently some programmers take this stuff so seriously that they refuse to learn a language that wont let them use their pet brace style or whatever. I wonder how they collaborate with other programmers or if they would reject a job offer from a company that used the wrong coding style.

P.S.: Also Go's syntax manages to keep code semicolon-free while avoiding the pitfalls of JavaScript.
