If there's a folder then it begs the question that there is a root file in that folder.
Only to a webmaster...
IMO Looks much better to the average, everyday end user, and besides, /blog/ really only displays a web page, just like /blog does... It's not like there's anything different or 'special' about the page or content, except for what the URL someone building a site thinks they should look like. They each display a 'page' on the site. /blog/ does not display anything 'extra' or do anything 'different' because it's a 'directory' in the URL... IMO It's just another page.
Anyway, just my continued .05 (inflation) about leaving the trailing / on or not...
Personally, I wish they'd remove the trailing / here too, but I'm being picky now... :)
