    As I recall this was on that weird home page/landing page that used to be there?

    I'd also like if you could click the icon next to a thread when viewing the main forum and doing it. Presently clicking that icon is just the same thing as clicking the thread title

    I like how growing up we were always taught to indent at the beginning of a paragraph but the only people that do it via email in my work circle are folks with worse grammar than me

    IIRC, there was a separate style we learned for "business letters" which is basically what emails are. And it was "block style" where you don't indent but you do leave a space between paragraphs. Indent/no space between is like what you write an essay with

    You’re right. Forgot I learned that just felt like second nature to me. I also hate this with period spacing:

    Can you please send me the document . It is very urgent .

    A girl I’m friends with texts like that too. She’s a pharmacist so it’s not like she’s a complete idiot. Drives me insane.

    Yep, that's the worst spacing thing, favored by boomers it seems.

    Second worst is people still doing two spaces after a period. That used to look normal to me and now looks terrible

    I do two spaces after a period on a computer. It’s what I was taught in some class growing up so it’s a habit. I didn’t realize that was a “debate” until seeing it somewhere on this board awhile back.

    On my iPhone I just double tap the space bar and keep rolling.

    There’s also someone I work with that does no space after a period. That one has me lost

    I particularly loathe when someone decides two spaces isn't enough and they just put a random number of spaces after each sentence.

    That's what we were thinking but the damper seems to be flush and the ash clean out door is tight. I was sitting on the edge of the fireplace about a minute before taking the picture. My assumption is that it was in the fireplace and made a run for it after I got up.

    One of my favorite TV tropes is on FBI/cop shows they always raid places with teams in full protective gear and high powered weapons, but the main agents run in with just a vest and a hand gun. The tactical team usually gets wiped out, but those tricky agents always make it out unscathed and get the guy.
