Professors want our assignments to be double-spaced. Why?

Double spacing probably made some sense in olden days when assignments were submitted in hard copy and professors could to write their comments between the lines.

Nowadays, all assignments are submitted electronically, which means the professors can make markings in the softcopy and save trees.  And don’t they find double-spaced writing very unusual and, therefore, difficult to read.
