They're all indented by different amounts. I don't see anything that
would cause the parser to tell you “unexpected indent”, though.
For those reasons together, I suspect what you've posted here does not
match exactly what is in your Python code.
* Instruct your text editor to highlight any U+0009 characters
(horizontal tab) as an error, and remove them. Indent with U+0020
SPACE characters only; PEP 8 recommends four spaces per indent level.
* Ensure your emails are composed in plain text (AFAICT, you're already
doing this), and show us *exactly* a complete example of code that
will demonstrate the behaviour you're seeing. Make a new one, if you
need to; just make sure it's complete so you can expect others to be
able to run it too.
