Unable to create paragraphs in comments

+2
−4

In comments, neither

line one

line two

nor

line one  
line two

(with two spaces after line one)

work to create a new line, the comment ends up being line one line two. This has messed up my formatting more than once, as I usually do something like

"quote from post"

comment

"other quote"

comment

and it doesn't quite look right without the paragraph break. You could argue that I should just make it two separate comments, but if it fits in 500 characters then I'd rather just make one comment especially if making two will fill up the top five spots.

Why should this post be closed?

Adding more formatting features to comments will only invite more abuse of comments. Olin Lathrop‭ about 1 month ago

I post multiple comments, if I notice that there are multiple quite separate thoughts (i.e. multiple paragraphs) in my comment. Nick Alexeev‭ 29 days ago
