Proposal: Bleach

Times out at 1-2 with 2 unresolved DEF votes. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 09 Oct 2018 18:21:46 UTC

Create a new rule entitled “Bleach” with the following text:

In the rule “Master Control Program”, any non-zero amount of whitespace can be replaced with any other non-zero amount of whitespace unless it is contained in quotes of any kind or backticks. Any player can perform this change at any time, but only should in order to bring internal consistency to the indentation of the said rule.

let me just say that the code is super ugly because HTML by default omits beginning spaces. This gives us the opportunity to fix it.

It looks fine to me, does the rule not look like this to you?

Also this seems somewhat abusable.

Maybe something that instructs enacting admins to indent consistently or to copy the text from between blockquote tags when in the edit menu of a proposal would be better?

I think we’ve been adjusting it without needing that rule.

What I’d really like is a technique and rule to fix it in proposals.
