You mean

        <r:if content['body'] exists? >

instead of <r:if_content>

        <r:if content['body'] blank? ?

But then I'm biased, or rather I'm somewhere between lazy and stupid.
I'd rather learn a pattern instead of memorizing disparate rules.

And we don't need John's new code cos we can already do it in a much
cleaner manner.

But then I'm not in a job where my productivity is measured by the
amount of code I produce but rather by the solutions I deliver, and part
of that solution is ease of maintenance by people even lazier and more
stupid than me - often called "users".

The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own
good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of
theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.
