Paragraphs are good when they're good.

I commonly have to strip and recreate them because paragraph codes are downright destructive when one is moving a script into, for example, a tab-delineated database for script analysis.

My son seldom uses them in his text posts to all his friends and yes, I'm trying to convince him of their value - but he and his friends parse them seamlessly.

Plus don't forget they're kinda senseless in the "twitterverse "(note that button at the bottom of the screen below!)

I agree, that here, in this forum, in it's primary format, traditional "write for the eye" text formatting helps readability.

But if I was gonna write this like a decent script - with better spoken word emphasis - clear pauses for breath - and compound sentences that sound like people speak - then punctuation becomes less important in achieving good results.


Bottom line - it might not be what you (or I) prefer. But that doesn't make it worthy of criticism.

Just sayin.
