I’ve always held a pretty utilitarian view of code as the best tool to earn (a shitload of) money. Therefore, I find it hard to understand why somebody would spend his energy on such debates and why not just add that f***ing semicolon, since, in accordance with the Zen of Python, “Explicit is better than implicit”.
