Tired of underscores "_"

Am I the only one who thinks underscores _ aren't that nice, and that they really shouldn't be used in OSM?

Re: Tired of underscores "_"

You implement in your personal life the philosophy: "BAN BAD HABITS !!!!" like some of us in OSM have implemented the philosophy: "BAN POTLATCH !**!@%^@!!" ? So you don't drink, smoke, drive too fast, swear, pick your nose, fart in public, bite your nails and eat little meat?

Re: Tired of underscores "_"

Those all fill a funfctional function were as _ is only there because someone thought it mattered. Which it doesn't and now everyone uses them, I haven't seen anyone not using them.

Re: Tired of underscores "_"

Maybe it is an age problem. The elder of us grew up with filesystems, where putting blanks into filenames was a no go and also in many other cases blanks led to trouble. In case of doubt, I still often use underscores when I'm suspicious if some program is going to use that... smile
