IDE text formatting
Is there a way to change the C# formatting from the bad
The use of the words "bad" and "superior" are great. Keep up the humor. :)

Not in 2003. You could use ReSharper if you urgently want to destroy your Visual Studio installation, though. Visual Studio 2005 Beta has all the options you need to uglify your source code at will.
This, of course, is the worst option:
I have to say, I prefer the default option that the o/p describes as "bad". It just looks right.

I share CC's preferences. But I don't care if others prefer alternate bracket placement. What irritates is IDE programmers who force their own preferences on others by not making the full range of options available.
Clutch Cargo is clearly living in an alternate universe where good is evil and up is down. Writing the opening brace after the block initiation statement is by far the best style, making a curly-braces language almost as beautiful as Python, and will be put into law the day I'm appointed galactic dictator.
