re: Seems to me like the linter could worry less about something that's no fault of any developer on the team, and more about ... 🤔 Actually, why do ...

How did linters come to rule the world?

Our "grown adult co-workers" used to go to war over things like tabs vs spaces, semicolons in JS, and a lot of other stuff. Prettier came along and made an easy to use tool that said "THESE ARE THE RULES. Now be quiet and get back to actual work" I don't think it was even configurable when it came out (or at least severely limited as to what could be customized)



What a stupid thing to go to war over in the first place. They've heard of "writing style" and "aesthetic", right?
