One space or two?

Do you put one space after the end of a sentence or two? People have been telling me that I’ve been doing it wrong for the last 25 years.
It depends on how devilish I am feeling. I like to be unpredictable and live life on the edge.
I put two. The question of whether or not doing it one particular way is “wrong,” however, is pretty murky nowadays, given the effects that texting has had on written communications.

way back when typing (especially ON a typewriter), the standard was two spaces.
Today’s font’s are not always True Types, so you may need two spaces to help get a nice break between sentences.

I prefer 2 spaces to 0, but I’m just used to 1 space. It’s an interesting idea. But it looks kinda weird, like an emphasis on the full stop, say “full stop with a hammer”…
For those sentences I want people to take time to think about, I prefer carriage return

Can you notice the problem with using two spaces on this site when I quote you?
