To be, or not to be (deleted)[edit source]

It's a shame I never saw the old Drops syntax. The concept, from a code-wise perspective, of defining all drops using a single template, is beautiful. It seems the entire discussion was hung up on trivialities of a particular implementation. Worthy of development, not deletion. I have seen the DropsTableHead and DropLine templates. Now we have 2 templates doing the job of 1, with a dangling unclosed table. To me, in terms of coding, this seems ugly, is prone to error from omission of dangling table closure, and may further complicate debugging on a complex page. Stylistically, DropsTableHead and DropsTable is STILL a table and STILL only used in the Chicken article (and I stuck it in Drake). I like the color coded table. But something is a little ... not quite right stylistically. So why haven't those two templates been attacked, eviscerated and summarily deleted, as was done here? The innovation-stifling crew is slacking. A pox on your ingenuity, I want my square wheels back. >:O -sarcasm- Warp9pnt9 15:19, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
