The Case Against Significant Whitespace

Why I don’t like the Python solution of using indentation to mark code blocks

Let me just preface this discussion by stating that I don’t think this is a big problem. In fact, I think people make too big of a deal of it. It really bothers me how people fixate on particular things that are not all that significant in a language to hate on it.

That could be people complaining about Go non-stop because it doesn’t have generics or because the Go designers dared to allow null-pointers.
