BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
I'm starting to think grammar and typography fans are worse than gun nerds when it comes to complaining about errors and inaccuracies.
I have a question for Farhad: how long has it been since you had a date with a real woman?Get a life, dude.Jeff
When I took typing back in the 10th grade, we were taught to type two spaces after a period for readability. That's how I learned and that's how I'll continue to type.I agree with everyone else here, that guy needs to worry about something more important.
I was taught two spaces after a period, so that's what I do. And when I'm finished with a book, it takes a couple of minutes, tops, to find and replace all the double spaces with a single space. The manuscript shrinks a page or two. Big fat hairy deal. It would take more time than it's worth for me to unlearn what I was taught in Miss Herring's class in 10th Grade. (And by the way, Miss Herring was pretty darned good-looking.)
One space is correct now that we are using computers and proportionally-spaced fonts. Two spaces worked for typewriters. It makes no sense in the modern age.I was also taught 2 spaces when I learned to type - over 35 years ago!
I was a two-space guy when I started my fanzine endeavors in 1969, but I switched to one space about 25 years ago. For a lazy man, not having to make that extra tap on the space bar is a godsend.
