Just to point out how wrong you are: your originally typed double space (visible in the comment draft when I quote you) gets corrected to a single space when the comment posts.Liked it until I read the section about putting two spaces after a period. I always put 2 spaces after a period, fuck him.
In a sense it is generational, but that doesn't mean the older generation isn't wrong.^ I wonder if this is generational. On what did you learn to type?
I believe the Apple IIE/C used monospace fonts, so it makes sense that you would have been taught to use a double space. If you had been born a few years later you likely would have been using Windows 3.1 and things would be different.Apple IIE or IIC. I can't remember. Probably both at one point.
I'm 38 years old, if that helps.
