I had a colleague who was putting the curly bracket on the same line, for compactness, but then was starting the code block with an empty line, for readability.
I used to like my brackets to match, but lint disagrees and so do most programmers. I have my principles, and if you don't like them, well ... I have others. Life is full of disappointments and sometimes it's easier just to go with the flow.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
