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,
