Double spacing at the start of a sentence
So I recently found out this was a thing that people argue over... Some people were taught to type putting a double space at the start of a new sentence and others were taught just using a single space. The double space thing is supposedly a carry over from people using typewriters to mimic print styles that went out of fashion in the 50s.
I reckon I'm on the losing side as I still do it.
But on this forum my spaces are edited down to single spaces automatically. So you'd never know which side someone was on! Is there any reason the controversy is not as inane as I think it is?
