giving python a second chance

what if guido is actually pretty smart?

what if he just made a couple big mistakes but we ignore all the things he did right?

I mean isn't it very sad to have this idea that the majority of programmers are idiots with terrible bad taste. maybe there's something to python that isn't all bad that we overlooked.

beyond the forced indentation, which is extremely irritating. I find that the fact they dont properly implement lexical scope not only a huge turn off but like.. you just know they'll never fix it or accept patches to fix it.

I don't understand the hate of significant whitespace syntax. Then again, I also don't complain about so-called "bloat" and Unicode emoji.

I use it where appropriate

I messed up the whitespace once when doing something in it. I had used some tabs and in some other places had the incorrect amount of spaces. It was very difficult to pinpoint the issue, so it really is better to have something visible delineate code blocks.

Your code formatting software should have no problem reformatting whitespace issues.

If that's the case, your software is buggy and needs fixing.
