Default First Annual Customers Suck! ¶aragra¶h Day

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
To se¶arate your com¶lete thoughts
I know of no reason
Why linebreaks between them
Should ever be forgot


It's November the Fifth, and I welcome you to celebrate the First Annual Customers Suck! ¶aragra¶h Day. You can celebrate by se¶arating your thoughts into organized ¶arts called ¶aragra¶hs. When the direction of your ¶ost changes significantly, hit the "Enter" or "Return" key twice to start a new section. As a general rule, a ¶aragra¶h should be about five to six sentences in length. This sim¶le ste¶ greatly im¶roves the readability of your ¶ost, making it much more likely that others will read it and res¶ond to you.

But Chuck Norris roundhouse-kicked my keyboard and broke the Enter key
Get a new keyboard. You can ¶robably find one for free from FreeCycle. While you're at it, try to find a better excuse, too.

I never know when to start a new ¶aragra¶h
If you have trouble knowing when it's a¶¶ro¶riate, just create a new one after every five or six sentences. It may not be ¶erfect, but we will a¶¶reciate the effort.

1'm 7h1r733n 4nd 1 th1nk ¶4r4gr4¶h$ $uX0r!
Grow up and do the dishes like mommy told you to.

Happy CS¶D!

Paragraphs are Phriends, not Phoolish! I believe this concept is my number one "Reason for Editing:" If I look up and my glob o' thoughts takes up the whole edit window......

We are being reminded to divide our posts into paragraphs when they start to look like giant globs of text, in order to make them more readable. (That ¶ symbol replacing all the Ps is a proofreading mark used to indicate a new paragraph is needed.)

Ah! (wonders why there is no lightbulb smiley)

It all makes glorious sense now.
