If people making long post could split their text into paragraphs, i've just tried to read an especially long post and gave up.
my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    I do agree that it’s hard to read big chunks of text, however need to be mindful of people that might struggle with paragraphing, grammar, etc.

    You're probably right.

    I've reported the account for spamming but I somehow doubt the Mods will do anything.

    Maybe they’ve read too much Asimov 🤣

    on a totally separate note years ago there was a program called Lucy which was an artificially intelligent agent which would engage in conversation with people. I think it was a counselling bot, so it could use stock answers like “how does that make you feel?” And such like. It fooled a lot of people into believing it was a real person. Just reminiscing. 🙂

    While that would be great in an ideal world @woodbine, as @MarkN88 says we do have to keep in mind that some people might find paragraphing challenging, for various reasons. 

    I would always encourage everybody to leave line spaces between longer sentences and break up your posts into manageable chunks, but it isn't a necessity, people should write their posts in a way that is most comfortable for them.

    Same goes for post counts, of course we want to prevent anybody from spamming on the community, but spamming is not always a person's intention. Platforms such as this can take time to get used to, and we should support people to do that.

    As always we take each report individually and respond to it in the way we believe to be the fairest way possible in accordance with our guidelines. Our actions aren't always visible to you all, but in this case we have taken some action to benefit everyone involved.
