I'm a serial user of the double __ space after a period — even though people tell me it's obsolete in the computer-world, I can't shake the habit from my 7th grade typing class.

comment Worst coding standard you've ever had to follow?
That may be bad teaching to require that without explaining good commenting, but I've had several cases where logic-heavy code I wrote justified comments on nearly every line (esp. Javascript). Not so much "Set x to 3" as "3 is the ID for html element nodes" or instead of "if x is greater than 2", "if we have more than 2 elements we want to hide the rest"
