That is the way Python is supposed to be. I wouldn’t call it stupid, its just the way the creator wanted it to be.

I definitely say it’s stupid to enforce scoping using just indentation.

And I’m the captain of this ship, so the only modding happening around here will be done by me, thankyouverymuch :)
