    Something that annoys me...

    The lack of paragraph structure in peoples posts.

    might not seem like much to some people, but trying to read a huge square block of text is difficult, and my eyesight isn't what it used to be (its not from age, I'm not that old, spend as much time in front of a computer screen, especially a CRT monitor below 60+hz, and you'll get near sighted too).

    I mean, how hard is it to start a new paragraph when you move on to a new train of thought?

    For instance, lets look at Dark1Angel's responce to Lebasiara's thread (Please can a man explain to me, cus I can't understand)

    Thats hard to read, and honestly (since I picked it on a whim with out reading it first), I think no puncuation was used at all and its all one run-on sentence.

    Now, I'm going to edit and make it readable. I'll highlight anything I cange.

    From my experience; I think the best way is to be reasonable with him and tell him upfront to be with you other then receiving something you do not like.

    Try your best to talk into him and to understand you better; Because if you don't say anything the gifts and spending separate time will be endless so its better to do the initiative like going direct towards him instead of the indirect way. good luck and hope you get it right.
    I edited it for grammar as well as paragraph structure.

    See how much better that is?

    Now I wish that everyone would do this. Because it pisses me off.

    What if we/you "IF POSSIBLE" make the default font bigger? Than nobody would have to strain their eyes trying to read.

    General rule of thumb is you leave the default text size the way it is. There's no need to use large font sizes unless you're trying to emphasize something. Overuse large font size, and you can be sure a staff member will let you know when enough is enough.

    I have no issues with reading the default text size, that wasn't the issue here. it was the blocks of text that all meld into one big blob.

    And I generally hate people with bad grammar.

    It is not only annoying to you Ace. I am pretty sure many posts get half read or not read at all because they can't be read. The train of thought is usually lost, therefore, the interest is lost as well.

    Me, I am going to be more careful, now that you point it out, in writing to keep the reader not only interested on my story by what it says but also in how it is read.

    The font size is good, I think. The only thing that makes it, many times, un-readable is the change of unadequate colors people do to them i.e.: can you really read this? or how annoying and eye stabbing is this?

    Now, imagine a whole paragraph like that.
    Annoying... isn't?
