Numerous pointless edits

Why bother changing the whitespace everywhere? It serves no purpose. If the example works, then leave it be. -- Erik Siers 09:31, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Whitespace usually improves readability.
  • Removing the whitespace just for the sake of removing it helps nobody, except maybe you. (I sometimes use terminal browsers, too, but I don't chop the whitespace.)
  • Editing a page for no other purpose than removing whitespace that you don't like seems... wasteful, I suppose. It's effort that could be better put toward solving other tasks.

Terminal and dial-up user; Some programs have more whitespace than actual code; Most C code I find here has no error or return checking, lack headers and portability. by signed) <edit by dingowolf 11:44, 6 February 2011 (UTC)>
Several thoughts:
  • Edits for purely stylistic issues aren't a problem IMO, as long as they're marked as 'minor' edits to avoid cluttering peoples' notification mechanisms.
  • I in large part agree on the error and return checking, and personally think the C code needs a lot of review in that respect.
  • You should set up a user account so it's easier to edit. (How are you getting through the CAPTCHAs in a terminal browser, anyway?) While initially you'll still see a lot of CAPTCHAs, they'll die down after a while. --Michael Mol 15:29, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

w3m + terminal works with captuchaimages.
