I personally downvote all posts (here, and wherever else I have that possibility) that use double spacing after each sentence. Yes, I was taught that convention when I learnt to type (back in the 1970s). But I also learnt (in the 1980s?) that with "modern" fonts, it no longer has any justification: today, apart from being ugly, it just looks like a ridiculous affectation.

So, henceforth, consider me as Yet Another Sworn Enemy. Any posts violating my sensibilities in this respect will be systematically downvoted.

That's what I think.

P.S. If you ever posted a line of code from time to time, rather than subjecting us to your usual boring, cliché-peppered (and often misleading, if not downright wrong) ramblings, maybe you would earn a small bit more respect from your fellow Monks...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
