Hey typography geeks!
What's your thought on spaces around em dashes?
I've always been of the opinion that em dashes shouldn't have spaces around them.
However, recently I've noticed that this doesn't work all that well in monospaced fonts (where em dashes, "—", are frequently not any longer than en dashes, '–").
And, many times (e.g., email) I don't know what font will be used. So I'm thinking about adding spaces as a general practice.

@aadil yeah this is so annoying. Privacy is not a binary thing, and the most important thing isn't targeted surveillance but mass surveillance: making it hard to do surveillance on a massive scale is not too hard and everyone should put at least some effort into it.
