Like the author's difficulties in searching for said operator, due to the lack of indexes on pure-symbol search turms, it took me a bit to track it down again!

If that's true someone explain to me why I see "you're/your" used wrong EVERY DAY. That's not an abbreviation, it's a chronic mistake.

Sure, I'll accept that we're on average better than we used to be... but that just makes me sick over just HOW ILLITERATE people used to be on average.

I dare you to maintain your point of view while you're being incinerated by a nuclear warhead, probably sometime next year or so. History suggests this won't happen.

Re: 1285: "Third Way"

Double spacing serves a purpose. It makes it easy to differentiate at a glance between a comma and a period just by the space that follows. It helps structure the text just a little bit more and makes it that much easier to process. I don't get the benefit of single space at all aside from sheer laz...
