It's 1/16" not 1/32". Depending on the length of the paper, it could add up to a much shorter paper if the assignment was supposed to be a certain number of pages.

I'm pretty sure APA (the most common format I`ve run into for science journals and essays) requires a 1/2 inch indent to start a new paragraph. I`m also pretty sure MLA does too--so unless this is some format I`m not aware of, the professor just eyeballed it and is obnoxious. At least it was only 1/20th a reduction, though.

Anyone that's ever written an article for an official research journal knows how frustratingly meticulous some journals` standards can be about formatting. Margin size, indentation, line to line spacing, font, etc., are all really basic requirements. No sympathy. I bet the formatting was in bold print on the paper requirements.
@darkmagici4n, in the real world (and academia) people don`t give a drat about word count, they give a drat about content, and whether they`re gonna have to spend hours reformatting your work just so it`s publishable.

Actually I'm with PinkHomicide on this one. All us men getting over-excited about 1/32 of an inch, and the teacher probably meant `this should start at the 1 inch mark like the rest of the text`.
Thank <insert favourite deity> for women and their common sense. Also their boobs.

I actually think professor is referring to the fact that he used an indentation in the new paragraph, while that's correct in most literature, I notice it`s not always typical in science or medical journals/reports.
