I agree that lack of paragraph breaks tends to render things unreadable.

But I do have to note that it's not always the authors fault. If the site has HTML or HTML-like formatting, then they may not have realized that in such a place extra spaces for formatting get converted to single spaces, and worse yet end-of-line characters get dropped.

On at least *some* story sites, you need to have at least *two* EOL characters in a row to get a paragraph break.

And on others *all* EOLs are retained which gives that horrible sawtooth formatting. Which is why the "best" way is often to only have EOL at the end of paragraphs, with a second one just in case. That way the paragraphs get properly seperated, and the lines get wrapped by your browser at *its* screen width.

It can be very confusing for newbies.
