I see your point, but you have reduced your browser width to about
46 columns, and zoomed in the font until the effect started to appear.

How realistic is that? All my browsers are always maximized, and the
font set to the default. I use Ctrl+NumPlus copiously, when not wearing
glasses, for example, and I rarely see this effect.

On what device/OS did you capture this? I went to my OP and had a
hard time reproducing it on Windows -- until I reduced my browser's width
to ridiculously low. I'll try with my Android and iOS browsers to see
when/if the effect appears.

I think I insert hard CRs at about 65-70 (didn't count), and review
before posting. This width allows me to see what I'm thinking and
typing, as I tend to write long sentences. Habits from being
very aware of the 80 column limit in the days of terminals.

If this habit is screwing up threads and hurting information
exchange, I'm willing to adapt.
