Other people have already explained the reasons. It all just comes down to one thing: There's a class of programmers who will never stop griping about trivialities like "Oh my god, I have to type a semicolon?! How horrible!"

Can we drop the matter already and get back to something a little bit less worthless like tabs vs spaces. If semicolons are such a terrible drain, there's always JS and Python. Have fun.
