Because we'd like to have developers share a cohesive culture around
the code and code style rather than have developers that are unable
to do better than agree to disagree about something so simple as
style, and resign to have a computer fix up the differences.

If not even agreement about style can be accomplished then it's not
very likely that much other agreement can be had either.

(Unfortunately I know that all too well from experience.)

I think that statement is quite intolerant of you. Learning a culture
by slowly immersing oneself in it is never a waste of time, I think
it enriches life in more ways than we can know.

If developers do not want to work together then they shouldn't
pretend; it would be much better to go separate ways.
