Oh Ron, don't be so lazy. ;)

It's a fantastic way to avoid errors. I have adopted this style and
it's one of those rare things which is annoying for maybe a week, but
goes on to benefit both you and everyone else forever after.

I encourage everyone to adopt it. You know, try it out for a week on
personal projects; challenge yourself to get used to it.

Hope you're having a good weekend!
