I've seen messages that are one humongous paragraph and I assumed 
that the robot was converting messages created in HTML to ASCII and 
screwing up the format. But for some reason I didn't associate these 
added line spaces as being generated by the robot. Makes sense to me now.

As I'm getting older (65) I find little things like the added line 
spaces bothering me. Things like the fact that my house has been on 
the market for over 9 months don't seem to bother me. :-)

Thanks for your words John, John/K4WJ
