I love it when people write lists on this forum, because when they get to item 8, I always imagine that they find this point particularly funny, cool, or awesome.

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)

Anyone else have that reaction? I don't mean to belittle anyone's posts, or make light of serious topics, I can't help but laugh every time.

(If you have smileys disabled you will have no idea what I'm on about.)

I always have to put a space between the number and the ")" to prevent this annoying issue.

It's enough to break the simplistic auto-recognition that "8" followed immediately by ")" always means " 8) " - except when it doesn't mean that... :?
