Algol-style vs C-style semicolons

Obviously, it's a religious issue.  I learned ALGOL before C, and when I
switched, the semicolons bothered me ... for about a week.  I'd just like
to point out that I've read that people make fewer mistakes involving
semicolons in languages that use them C-style than ALGOL-style.
