Forum Grammar Settings

O.K., so I'm a bit of a grammar Nazi (no political affiliation) and I feel the overwhelming need to comment on the forum changing my post from having two spaces after punctuation between punctuation to one. For several centuries the standard for English grammar has been to have two spaces between punctuation and the beginning of the next sentence. I am most upset with the internet's aversion to having two spaces after a punctuation and wish to voice my concerns here and now. Please, if it is within your power, please change the settings on the forum to allow me to type in proper English format, PLEASE! This is seriously setting off my O.C.D. to the point of borderline intolerance. I don't much care how other people feel about this, they can use as many spaces (or none at all, if such is the case) as they please, just don't rob me of my right to have proper sentence structure. You can have your own opinions on the subject, but since we do not have an apparent limit on characters per post I just ask that you respect mine.
In the beginning, there was chaos, and the chaos was the Infantry, the Queen of Battle. However, the Queen was alone. And fear was with the Infantry, so she cried out unto the Lord saying, "Lord, save us for we are afraid!"

The Lord said unto them, "I shall send unto you a race of men noble in heart and spirit." And the Lord created the Field Artillery, and named them the King of Battle.

And the Lord gave the King big guns and big bullets. And the Infantry were jealous, for they had none. And the Lord gave the Field Artillery rockets and missiles and nukes. And when the Infantry saw this, they fell to their knees in awesome wonder, saying surely the Lord is on the side of the Field Artillery, the King of Battle

P.S.

I may be borderline intoxicated at the time of this post, but that does not reduce the validity of my statement.

It's not a forum setting, it's the code of the forum framework itself.

Until I read your post I have never actually heard of typing two spaces after sentance punctuation, and a follow up google search told me it was a highly debated topic, so I don't want to start an argument :P
I respect your choice to type two spaces, but I didn't find anything that would justify calling it the only "proper" english format or that it has been "standart for several centuries", actually single sentence spacing has been standard in books, magazines and newspapers since 1950. (According to wikipedia :razz: ) The reason why the forum software doesn't support two spaces is probably that it isn't standart on the internet, as html and css (prior to 2.1) don't support it.

Now to not make this look like starting an argument take these grammar related memes:

I cannot convey how proud I am to come in to check the game status for the first time in months and see my grammar rant has the most recent post on the forums almost a year after it went up. I fell like a mother bird watching her babies fly.

Watch on youtube.com
