Yeah, we're not gonna see eye-to-eye on that one, I think. Believe it or not, one of the little things I especially loved about the web when it came along was that we could finally put whitespace around our em dashes. --Pi zero (talk) 23:23, 2 July 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
AP's been doing it for decades—one of a handful of problems I've had with that style for decades (😜). My pet peeve: the insistence on using commas within quote marks to separate titles. It's a holdover from the days when italic typeset was rare. 🖖ATS / Talk 23:34, 2 July 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've always figured omitting whitespace around em dashes for a holdover from the expense of paper real estate. --Pi zero (talk) 23:44, 2 July 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
