okay....doublespace doesn't diminish readability in the slightest. if you can't keep your attention span up for the time it takes to gaze over two white spaces, that's your fault.

double space ENHANCES readability because it follows the conventions of speech*. you PAUSE after a period for longer than you do after a comma.

* yes, I'm aware that written text and speech use different grammar patterns, but a space is not a 'grammar'

then again, people add 'and' after a period. How someone thought that was a good idea - i do not know.

EDIT: is there a good article for arguments for putting and after periods?
