Excellent trolling. I started off just skimming, and when I read the part about editing your node_modules I thought, "surely this is some sort of typo." The Functions section gave it away, and the spaces thing was hilarious.

A coworker and I always debate 2 vs. 4 spaces (he's in the 4 space camp). As a joke, I suggested going rogue and doing five just to prod him, ha. Thanks for the read. I thought it was very obviously satire, but now I'm not so sure, haha.

It's a classic Poe's Law situation.

Team Two Spaces, all the way.

No spaces is the new 4 spaces.

I also cracked at #3 since I've been struggling with a co-worker who always justifies his awful practices and lack of adherence to project's styling decisions with: "Code is art, i have my own style" 😂

Couldn't you compromise on using 3 spaces?
