      <div class="">But seriously, that has indeed been debunked long
        time ago. As the Altium article correctly states there is a
        point for manufacturability of sharp corners, and their tendency
        to cause acid traps during etching. I haven’t seen any problems
        with that in the last decade with 6/6 mil spacing boards though.
        I guess it might still be a problem if you’re
