Because some of us just ramble on a long time with one sentence because if you're on an iPhone you cannot tell where your line is going to end, so is it right to fill up a whole paragraph with just one sentence?

Sometimes " Rebel without a clue" is all that is needed to get a protracted response .

Sometimes a second line would just dilute the message.

From Shakespeare's Hamlet, 1602:


LORD POLONIUS
This business is well ended.
My liege, and madam, to expostulate
What majesty should be, what duty is,
Why day is day, night night, and time is time,
Were nothing but to waste night, day and time.
Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit,
And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,
I will be brief: your noble son is mad:
Mad call I it; for, to define true madness,
What is't but to be nothing else but mad?
But let that go.




Bold is my addition.

I think Bill Shakespeare said it best, however.

So the respondee supplies the protagonists underLIEing message/content or explaination of the protactee. Smart lazy or both. A second line delinianates; if you leave the responder to explain your post is brilliant in a backward method to explain yourself to yourself (with no fallout to you; as its all on them now).
