They don't ruin indentation...they simply don't, by default, support any kind of 
automatic line-wrapping or automatic indentation.  They fully support manual 

These things are easily tweaked with the PageWidth and AutoIndent options if 
you'd like to change the Code style or invent a new style.  The reasoning behind 
this decision is that Code cells are more likely to contain code over which you 
might want to express greater control of the display, as opposed to math where 
it tends to be pretty convenient and useful for Mathematica to just take care of 
the line-breaking/indenting for you.
