programmer 2: Yeah, but it'll break.
p1: But... that's just it, it *doesn't* break. It's actually ok for me to do this.
p2: No it isn't.
p1: Why not?
p2: Browser bugs.
p1: Which browsers?
p2: All of them.
p1: Well, it works fine on all the engines I've tested---
p1: Works fine there, too. Even in IE 5.
p2: Compression. Compressors can't handle it. Need the semicolons. All of them.
p1: All the compressors in use today handle it fine. In fact, the code compresses a little *better* in most of them.
p2: Well, whatever, that's not how it's done.
p1: Ok, well, there are other reasons to do things besides a convention. I mean, you're wearing an unconventional hat, and that's cool.
p2: So, now you have a problem with my coding style AND my hat?? FUCK YOU.
p1: You can code however you want, and I love your hat, I was ju---
p2: No. NO. Fuck you. Seriously. You crossed a line, dude. Too far.

p1: Let what go, exactly? And I don't really think that I'm the one who needs to lighten anything.
p2: Oh, so now you come in with the personal attacks. I get it. We're all not smart enough to understand your precious spec, so you have to attack people? HAVE YOU NO DECENCY, SIR? AT LONG LAST, HAVE YOU NO DECENCY?
