Spaces After Period

  • August 5, 2008, 9:21am

Yes, folks, I am the one who will secretly run behind your document and "correct" it to have two spaces behind every period. Yes, I am the Two Space Bandit. Call me old-fashioned or just call me crazy, but I believe that two spaces after every period improves readability and differentiates between comas and periods. And yet, for those who insist that the two space generation is dead and buried, what I find instead are some people who use both one space and two spaces after a period since they're really not paying attention to how they are writing in terms of punctuation. In my opinion, its a personal preference, but regardless, it it important to maintain consistency throughout your entire document. That's ok, these people will be mocked and ridiculed by their peers while I ride off into the sunset after a hard day of helping others reduce eye strain and improve the format of the world's documents.

And for those who believe that two space rule is not a standard among professional documents, well think again, I write professional documents for the government everyday, as well as countless academic documents back in grad school. So yes! The two space movement lives on!!

Viva la two spaces!!
