Description hmbrand 2013-10-18 08:38:06 UTC
This rule would be a nice to have hint:
Useless parentheses around expressions should be removed to prevent any misunderstanding 
 squid : UselessParenthesesCheck

 Useless parentheses can sometimes be misleading and so should be removed. 

 The following code snippet illustrates this rule: 
return 3;             // Compliant
return (x);           // Non-Compliant
return (x + 1);       // Non-Compliant
int x = (y / 2 + 1);  // Non-Compliant
int y = (4+X) * y;    // Compliant

Lightbulb => "Remove useless parentheses"
