    I think it is utterly ridiculous, but I do it anyway.

    My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy.

    I can understand why.

    [I really do.]

    Now it looks nice.

    Yes, but the cadence is ruined...

    Maybe I should add that: I'm excessively concerned with the cadence, flow, and look of my posts. Or most any work I put together.

    Funny, I find your posts rather ungraceful.

    I am very sorry. Should I have lied? It is just that the pompous blank and chopped lines displease my sense of beauty.

    The blank lines, they are pompous, don't you think?

    Mind you explain exactly what you mean by blank and chopped?

    As for pomp, I would never want to purvey such a thing...

    Lo and behold!

    I have four tupperware containers of decaying pineapple, two in the refrigerator, two in a cupboard.

    To be honest, I am not all too sure whether you really do the chopped line.

    It is a way of making space for yourself, more than is necessary to contain your words. How would you describe it?

    Frankly, I'm still a bit confused what you mean by chopped line...

    I would say that it's a way for me to space my thoughts.

    When I read them, a period doesn't provide the correct amount of separation, and putting one line directly below another looks, for the most part, atrocious to me.

    If I desire less separation than a period, I use a semi-colon, a colon, a hyphen, a dash, or perhaps an ellipsis.

    If I want more, well, the only option is to hit enter.

    Since the first hurts my eye, I choose to go with the second.

    I'm sorry to offend your sensibilities, but it is to my own that I owe allegiance...
