Not only indentation as syntax, but rules as PEP8 contributes to code 
readability  and makes language less prone to syntax bugs, BTW.

If I would be programming in a team, I'll stick with these rules for 
convenience, but some gambas programmers seem to not work in teams 
and/or refuse to stop bad habits from the past inherited from VB6 era.

How can be gambas be taken as a serious programming language by seeing 
all that messy code spreading everywhere?

Well, everyone has an opinion as well as everybody are free to choose 
for themselves.
