Please turn your line wraps on to something more sensable like 72
columns per line instead of one paragraph per line.

This isn't meant to be picking on you. But I've been considering this
for a while.

People shouldn't wrap lines at all in messages they send -- this is a
hoary hold-over from the dark ages.

Line wrap is a display function, and it should be handled by the
receiver's MUA. People who want big windows with wide paragraphs can
have them; people who want narrow windows can have those.

And people who still use MUAs that can't do line wrap should consider
finding one that can.


Then again modern GUI MUA's can automajically unwrap line wrapped messages[though it does need cooperation from the sender ala this message]... So it makes more sense to cater to legacy MUAs.
