No need to argue over code conventions. Everyone knows that there is only One True Bracket Style:

One True Bracket Style

 

Combine that with the Fibonacci indentation and you can start a war!

void foo()                            {
 foo                                  { 
   bar                                { 
      baz                             { 
           qux                        {
                   foobar             { 
                                      }
                                      }
                                      }
                                      }
                                      }
 

That's great! First I'd heard of Fibonacci Indentation. I like it!
