Hah..the tone was indeed a little on the strident side. It’s not something I care enough about to get worked up over. I vaguely remember either my father or some grade-school teacher trying to insist on the two spaces. But as I started to read more, I literally was only seeing this regularly from people used to using typewriters, or at least that’s how it seemed.
Actually now that I use braille output more than speech, I find myself surprised at how many people on these lists for instance use the two spaces.
It’s ok of course – just an observation.

There exists scads of research out there in regard to what makes text more (visually, not machine) readable. It's pretty well known that serifed fonts are easier for humans to read than ones without serifs.
