comment WordPress sharding: which multi-DB plugin to use?
Perhaps this? "HyperDB allows you to split database writes and reads and assign each to an array of servers."(codex.wordpress.org/HyperDB#Replication)

comment WordPress sharding: which multi-DB plugin to use?
This sounds like a great option, but can you explain a little more about how you would go about accomplishing this? (i.e. How to configure WP such that writes go to the master and reads go to one of the slaves) Is there a plugin that can assist with this? Or is it DB-level configuration/some other tool?

comment Updating a post without escaping ampersands?
Also, researching this a bit more, it looks like someone has blogged about this. And, as it turns out, that person was me. Facepalm? :) endorkins.com/2013/08/27/…

Fun trivia: KSES is a recursive acronym meaning, "KSES Stops Evil Scripts"

comment Detecting errors generated by $wpdb->get_results()
Sounds reasonable - I can't look into this right now, but if this works, it would come in handy in the future! Thanks! :)

comment Why is Wordpress code so “space-happy”?
thanks for your answer! The . spacing makes sense to me, as . is really just a binary operator, just like + or -. Your thoughts on parentheses "hugging" their contents is exactly why I asked this question. This behavior, along with the even weirder rules like those for square brackets (WP says to use $foo['bar'] and $foo[ $bar ]) are exactly why I asked this question. :)

I think I wasn't super clear in my question - I'm referring less to tabs vs spaces, and more to "Space Usage" at make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/coding-standards/php/…. I'll edit the question to be clearer.

Thanks for your comment, @TomJNowell! I think maybe I miscommunicated in my "question" - I'm asking less about tabs/spaces for indentation, and more about the rules mentioned under "Space Usage" at make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/coding-standards/php/…. Sorry I wasn't more clear!
