I’m not sure if it’s a new thing or that I just didn’t notice it before, but I’m noticing a lot of double spacing after periods (full-stops) lately.
Here’s a comment I found on reddit for example:
My dad had a pet raccoon too! (Sort of, it was an outdoor raccoon that he was very friendly with and fed), it was when he was a kid (like 16). His favorite story is one time he took this girl out to get ice cream and the raccoon followed them there. He knew they were being followed but she didn't. They got some ice cream and sat down and she noticed it and he said "Bet you a kiss I can get that raccoon to come over and lick my ice cream and let me pet her." Which she laughed at and accepted. He stuck out the ice cream and it came running over and jumped on the table and I guess she kind of freaked out.
I have even edited posts on other @SE sites to removing double spacing after the periods.
Is double spacing after a period now a thing?
