While I agree with what a lot of people said here - you probably should use the the expanded syntax - it doesn't exactly address the fact that it is much quicker (or FEELS much quicker) to type the abbreviations. Especially when I'm in the coding groove and trying to get stuff done. The fact is your IDE can can expand all the commands. My take is this: let your developers do whatever makes their job easier. It's easier to write shorthand, but read longhand - make a tool that converts shorthand to longhand and put that into your source control.
Oh no! I did miss it!!! Sorry John!
Maybe I should edit the title to say 16 years!!!That's why I like to post stuff like this. 60 seconds of work that can save you hours of frustration are tricks worth knowing about.
