It helps to make posts easier to read if you use paragraphs
 
some posters, especially new members, do a very long post all in one paragraph, which is a bit overwhelming.
 
on some other boards, the moderators break these posts up into paragraphs, which I think should be done here also

I agree harry that paragraphs should be used.

As for your comment on editing "run on posts"...I suppose we will do what we can but we do not all have time to sit and "proof read" every post and make sure it is readable...We do read posts but sometimes that is all we have time for barring an urgent matter...Hope you understand.

I would be more than happy to do paragraphs just tell me how.  If i use the space bar it backs up the sentance. If i use the mouse it takes me all over the place in the middle of a sentance.  HELP

If you just press enter twice at the end of a sentence it should give you a line between...

I agree. Some people who are having panic attacks while they're posting may have a hard time with it just because their thoughts are racing. Asking them to concentrate on their writing may actually help them slow down, though. Not sure.

glad this was brought up. On one of my Fibromyalgia boards this is a big concern, as alot of us can't read a post if it doesn't have any breaks in it. Too hard on the eyes and the head.

Thanks Harry!
