A pet-peeve of mine is single spaces after periods.  I prefer two spaces after periods.  This is a stylistic choice of mine although when I was in college writing philosophy papers that's how we were instructed to do it.  But I guess the single space after a period today a standard.  Same thing with the hypen vs. the dash.  the dash is two hyphens -- not this -.  Although I find the hyphen often looks better as a dash because our writing is becoming more condensed with technology.  This is probably why the single space after a period has come back as a stylistic dominant.  One space after periods makes sentences look overly mooshed together in my opinion.  Don't get me started on people who don't uppercase letters when that's absolutely required lol.  I'm also realizing I'm not a huge fan of overuse of emojis either -- but don't let my taste dictate anything for anyone.

My pet peeve is bad writing.  This ^ post is a good example of generally bad writing. Let's just make that a rule here, no bad writing.  I understand if English is a second language, but there's no excuse for this.

Nothing I'm just making fun of Phil for making a thread called "housekeeping" to address his one weird pet peeve, and making fun of Joseph Maynor for his consistent poor use of the English language, because I am a dick.

What constitutes bad writing? 

I never understood. 

 

So basically I'm an autistic INFJ BPD sigma Pisces female with anger and CPTSD issues. Wow wow. 

My plate looks full. I Couldn't have been weirder than that. Now I get why I'm so idiosyncratic.
