Casting against type.
I still receive drafts from people who type two spaces after every period. Though I itch like mad to delete those extra spaces, every single one of them, I assume they must have a good reason—like, their publications require it? Like, they were never told it was not a rule anymore? As Farhad Manjoo writes in Slate, there is no good reason. One space. Please.
