Same here.

OK: 1. Paragraphs are cool. After a few sentences, throw in a pair of line breaks, not just one. No need to save paper ... 2. Short phrases are cool. Mark them with *the* most wonderful typographical invention (after "word space"), namely, the "comma". 3. Throw in line breaks all over the place, especially following a comma, to simulate blank verse or song lyrics. 4. Use even more line breaks (and commas (and parens)). Result: Nobody ever asks me for more punctuation, they just trash the content.
