importance of punctuation

Here’s a great quote by Hemingway that sums up why it’s important to structure code in a standard way that others can understand:

My attitude toward punctuation is that it ought to be as conventional as possible. The game of golf would loose a good deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green. You ought to be able to show that you can do it a good deal better than anyone else with the regular tools before you have a license to bring in your own improvements.
