The way I see it, it's not meant to tell you something, it's
punctuation, it's as if you'd argue against periods and spaces at the
end of sentencesBecause the next sentence is capitalized anyway, so you
already know the last sentence ended. In the same way, in many cases
other punctuation is not absolutely necessary for understanding.

The other thing is of course that it helps you not to name your
variables using keywords and spot misspelled keywords.
