What I don't understand is the whole reasoning behind it. First of all, how can consecutive spaces result in something like
D n i
o e n...
unless the program was something like
Opponent1::Say("D n i\n o e n...");
which would have made it intentional. Secondly, the letters are aligned correctly, something rare in glitches. If it was caused by spaces (the ASCII 0x20 variety) wrapping around like the HP bar in the Pomeg Glitch, ZZAZZ, Super Glitch (?), etc., even if it is a restricted text window (which is unlikely given the device type), the ' ' and '...' would have also alternated the line, resulting in
D n n
o e i ...
Thirdly, it could be a sort of joke among the programmers. What other 'phrase' do we know that follows this pattern?
So, once and for all, is it actually a glitch? I can't wrap my head around how it could (although there are some other glitches far more confusing). Or is it just an error in the coding, not related to consecutive spaces? (Driftveil's... Old... Lady... comes... to... mind...) In any case, the "glitch" either needs more detail or the detail present is incorrect.
