Not at all, I'm saying that the OP's question about proper indentation 
has resulted in an incorrectly answered post due to poor substitution of 
ellipses in place of the word `code` compounded by replying to the 
original post rather than the post containing the OP's example of 
indentation (containing the aforementiond word `code`) combined with a 
failure to read and comprehend the entire thread leading to the 
incorrect answer.

I hope that makes it all clear.
