Take that, all you two-spacers!

“A page of text with two spaces between every sentence looks riddled with holes; a page of text with an ordinary space looks just as it should.”

Writing for Slate, Farhad Manjoo lucidly explains why typing two spaces after a period is not only completely unnecessary, but a crime, in fact (typographically speaking).

  1. Just think of all the unnecessary stress inflicted upon one's right thumb tapping on the space bar that many more times in the course of a day, week, lifetime. It's got to be bad for our healtcare system.
