With the python fad, and it's silly/stupid use of whitespace
That is probably the number one complaint lobbed at Python. But most complaining can produce a convincing argument for why consistent indenting and alignment is essential in any language with nested constructs, even if entirely voluntary.
Take a C program, move the braces up, remove them and semicolons, tweak the syntax a bit and there's often very little difference between that C and Python.
Once one realises it is mostly complaining about having to type whitespace which one would have chosen to type anyway that stops being so much of an issue.
