However, there is a typographical issue that irks me even more than CS. Whenever I see it, I clench my jaw and flair my nostrils. I usually don’t complain about it aloud because I know it’s a holdover from ancient times when people used an instrument called a typewriter…the perp is doing it innocently enough. Instead, I seethe inside and correct it surreptitiously when I can.
What is this horrible depravity? Double spaces. That’s right. I’m going to give myself a heart attack over people who put double spaces after periods. Hey, we all have our things, some more life threatening that others.
At least I’m not alone in my anger. Farhad Manjoo, from Slate, however, writes a much better article about it.
So, what’s your “thing?”
