The space if often missed by many, either intentionally or unintentionally
(not to mention the crucial newline). I can recall very long argument about
the signature sequence, as well as the 4-line limit, which Netscape very
religiously complains about. Only hours ago I noticed an odd signature

The funny thing is that you can see an attempt the add the two dashes, but
the space is missing. So, as a consequence, you get very many lines embedded
in the body of all replies. I never have the courage to say something about
it, especially if it's from someone you work with.
