Sometimes, it is difficult to tell whether you are doing the
right thing in spite of a crowd of mislead people trying to
lead you astray or whether you are doing the wrong thing in
spite of a crowd of fine people trying to show you the way: In
both cases you find yourself on the other side, and no general
rule (such as ?Always ignore criticism.? or ?Always do as the
crowd.?) is always right.
If I am writing code as an employee, I surely will have to
follow the employers coding conventions. In the Usenet, I am
writing in my leisure and solely for my personal fun. So, in
this case, I feel free to format the source code as I please.
However, I do not whish to offend anyone. If my newsreader
would be able to automatically reformated included source
code to Sun's Convention when sending a posting, I would
enable this, to please people. But not having this, I do
not want to do extra effort.
Here are quotations of people with some trust in ?their way?:
?And do it your way...it's the only way.?
Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Tarkus
?There are so many people, and I can't please
them all, so I better might please nobody?
Bob Dylan (from my memory, can't find the source)
?If I had a motto, it would probably be herd thither, me hither.?
?I think the most important characteristic of an
entrepeneur is that they're going to do it whether you
give them permission or not.?
But then, the last attribute might also apply to a criminal.
