@Mark Trapp as for pusing other questions off the front page there is exactly one question on the front page with more up votes.

comment Can there be too much uniformity in coding standards?
@Mark Trapp I've already stated criteria for an acceptable answer and yes as I've said this is an actual problem and quite frankly from the interest in the question and the answers I would say others agree.

comment Can there be too much uniformity in coding standards?
@Mark Trapp according to the FAQ these are the criteria for a question All subjective questions are expected to be constructive. How do we define that? Constructive subjective questions … 1. inspire answers that explain “why” and “how”. 2. tend to have long, not short, answers. 3. have a constructive, fair, and impartial tone. 4. invite sharing experiences over opinions. 5. insist that opinion be backed up with facts and references. 6. are more than just mindless social fun. I believe my question covers the first 4 at the very least

@Mark Trapp the criteria is specifying value that I'm not seeing, which many of the answers have provided.

@Mark Trapp my problem is the rigidity creeping into my environment my question is, is there value there that I'm not recognizing. Both already stated above.
