Ligatures are weird and don't make code easier to read.

Intellectually, they're just another glyph; no different than any other letter. I can't read Russian, that doesn't make it unreadable. Everything is hard to read until you learn to read it.

Emotionally, yeah, I don't use them either. Hipster nonsense. ;-)

 

True while they are just another glyph, even if I was use to reading them, they don't make code any easier - they are just another way of representing something that wasn't even a problem.

It is kinda like a solution in search of a problem.
