Because $, is the character used when you give a list of values to the print statement, but you've used '.'s.
Ie. You're giving the print statement a single (concatenated) value, therefore the item separator is never used.
This might achieve your goal:
but "three blank columns" is a very nebulous concept.
Update: FTR, I might code that as:
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
