Progress Update - Wednesday, September 30, 2015
Personally, I've always hated them. It seemed superfluous. Yet, I don't think I'm going to to settle the debate. A lot of developers are using semicolons because that's what they've always done or because that's what they're used to from other programming languages. I doubt I'm going to change their minds.
Update: I might change my mind on this one, but I'm starting to think semicolons should be used. It's not just fear, uncertainty and doubt. There are legitimate concerns. I don't think they're major concerns, but it's enough for me to feel bad about excluding them.
