Every now and then I have to dig into other people’s code that doesn’t comply to my coding standards. When I make a change on these files, Syntastic lights up like a Christmas tree. Since this is not my code and I can’t really fix it, I prefer to temporarily disable Syntastic:

:set SyntasticToggleMode
[ productivity  vim  ]
Vim command line mode
The Vim statusline
Spell and Grammar checking on vim
Setting the search directory for Ctrlp vim plugin
Disable expandtab in Vim
