Just say no to multiple paragraphs

I think using multiple paragraphs on the front page clutters it up and makes it more difficult to instantly identify the end of one post and the beginning of another. For example. This is why [more inside] exists, no?

Edit Posting?

Just posted this http://ask.metafilter.com/58158/Rats-in-the-car And the preview looked fine, but the final posting is one paragraph and hard to read. How can I correct it and did I do something wrong?

a paragraph break callout

I know that it's Christmas, and filmgeek seems like a great guy, and this is indeed a great post. But are the paragraph breaks really necessary? It seems like they don't really add anything to the post, and they don't make the link any more clear or insightful. I don't really see why they have to be there, and they kind of throw off the eye when browsing the blue.

Sorry if this is the Worst Callout Ever. I realize that the topic of line breaks has been touched on before, but as far as I can tell, we haven't gotten into the paragraph breaks too much. What is the policy on this? (To be clear, I don't intend this as a filmgeek callout, just a paragraph break callout).

Entire paragraphs as linked text

Does anyone agree with me that posting an entire paragraph as a single link makes it very hard to understand? I find it very difficult to read these types of links and posts. Particularly because a mouseover event causes the entire paragraph (in bold typeface) to flash between white and yellow on a blue background.
