    Its caused by words being too long. Example the following was typed without spaces:
    Code:
    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    And I believe its intentional. And if its happening to your code its probably unreadable anyways

    I always thought it was intended to be a text-wrapping thing, so things like what thantos wrote wouldn't span as long as they do... like something that would add a space and therefore give the board a place to wrap the text...
