    ,speaking of grammar etc

    have you guys noticed the increasing trend of late of people not leaving spaces after punctuation marks in their text ?
    I see it regularly on PF and other forums

    eg. ( just a random bit of text I have altered to show what I am referring to)

    How much charge remains in any battery is a complex function of the chemistry of the battery,the ambient temperature,the unloaded terminal voltage,the loaded terminal voltage,and (for NiCd batteries) the charge/discharge history.The only reliable way to "measure" the remaining charge is to know the charge/discharge history of the battery.There are integrated circuits used for battery management that can do this task fairly well for some battery chemistries.For wet-cell lead-acid batteries,the specific gravity of the electrolyte at a known temperature gives a reliable estimate of the charge condition.


    I really cannot understand what their aversion is to putting spaces after commas and periods ?

    cheers
