Someone edited my code because he felt the indentation was not enough - not other changes
A major code formatting problem here at SO is in my opinion the width of the editor window.
We all know how
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title></title> <script>
could be indented. I never do. It is preamble and in my strong opinion does not need to be indented at all. When someone then adds 4 (FOUR!) spaces to EVERYTHING, the first line of code is pushed 12 spaces to the right - that is a huge waste of space and will make almost any code not completely visible to the right. Just a few ifs to overflow the right border.
Example on my code which I had to roll back since the edit was accepted:
It is a pain, unnecessary and in my case forces readers to scroll
What is the best way to handle this? these edits seems to have been allowed for some reason I do not understand instead of rejected as too minor or invalid or at least proposed to me to agree on.
