Disagree. Looks more formal and provides a more aestically pleasing gap between sentences than a period and one space alone.

This is all part of DF's campaign to create (and fill) a copy editor position at his law firm.

No, it's objective fact that two periods looks like dogshit. So that poster would be wrong.

No. It looks ridiculous when full justified. It is ridiculous regardless of how the text is justified.

I think justified looks nice. Two spaces after periods looks stupid IMO. Also I thought word sort of does the two space thing automatically (not two spaces but makes it look nice).

Two spaces is a dying breed at least.
