    Thumbs down Double spaced posts.

    Please stop double spacing posts.

    There is no need to double space your posts.

    We can read them just fine if they are single spaced.

    Scrolling through a double spaced post that takes up a whole

    page is quite annoying because it would be half as long if it were

    single spaced.

    Is this easier to read? No.

    Thanks.

    There are no words.

    Sorry.

    It happens when you

    copy and paste your

    code from something

    like Notepad sometimes.

    But considerate souls

    could still delete the

    extra lines
    Away.

    Not only do you have to scroll so much, it makes it much more difficult to read, well at least I find it harder

    Another Thing That Is Annoying Is When Someone Always Capitalizes The First Letter Of Every Word.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    no punctuation or capitalization can also be annoying it makes the post very hard to read it becomes difficult to follow it just doesnt make sense
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
