Can we have support for linebreaks in comments, please? It'd make it so much easier to read and compose long comments, or ones where "special" formatting would be helpful... Thanks.
Yes, I know you can split them into several comments, but that's just awkward and even more time-consuming. - Tyson Key
I'm not sure I need line breaks (as I use separate comments to achieve this) but some very basic HTML support in the first comment would be most welcome. This would aid us in using FF as a basic blog platform. - Kol Tregaskes
It might also help with times when BackType stuff gets imported, and the result is so long that nobody in the right mind could scan through it quickly. - Tyson Key
True. It certainly would be beneficial for imported comments, say from an custom RSS feed. I'd like to see the paragraphs broken up instead of being one long sentence. Good point, Tyson. :-) I still wouldn't like it as native support. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Now that I think about it, it could work as one comment-per-paragraph, but it'd just create confusion if people decide to start injecting other comments in-between each paragraph, as they're imported, or if we ever got the much-requested threaded/nested comments support. - Tyson Key
Yep, there would be no problem if the import was quick though, so it still might work like that. - Kol Tregaskes
Still, I get the feeling that it was intended initially for relatively short "local" comments like "Oh! That LOLCat is so cute! I wish I could hug it", rather than for importing long blog comments quoting parts of "War and Peace" or proposals against porting Dalvik to Windows CE-powered toasters. ;) - Tyson Key
Thanks for the feedback, Tyson. I've added it to our suggestions list. - Ross Miller
I would really like 'em too! - J.D. Deutschendorf
Yay! Thanks, Ross. - Tyson Key
Just fell for this again - pasting in stuff with linebreaks looks like it's going to work, then does this - http://ff.im/5SqhB - immaterial
Yeah, that's the biggest problem this issue causes: having to painstakingly edit and split across multiple comments something you should just be able to cut and paste. - Mark
You have to remember, however, that it *is* convenient now that I can type *and* post without lifting my hands from the keyboard. Just typetypetypetype and press Enter. OTOH, linebreaks *do* make comments easier to read. YOTOH, someone can mis-use linebreaks to type in a comment with, let's say, 100 linebreaks or so... a linebreak vandalism... and that will surely annoy the hell of everybody. - Pandu ● IT Optimizer
Line breaks wouldn't require you to take your hands off the keyboard. They'd just have to make Shift+Enter insert a line break and Enter to post. As for vandalism, a) it's unlikely, and b) it's trivial to code in protection against that sort of thing. - Mark
@Mark: Ah, you do have a point there. If all nitpicky stuff like that gets properly handled, then I'm all for line breaks. Yessir :-) - Pandu ● IT Optimizer
would love to see line breaks, too...there are codes to check for abusive line breaks (i.e. huge blank spaces in between paragraphs...though it may increase server load a bit)...maybe even RichText or Emoticons? - brainno722 (Peter) from NoiseRiver
RichText I don't really like. BBCode-style formatting for [b]bold[/b], [i]italics[/i], and [color=black]color[/color] would be welcome, though. - Pandu ● IT Optimizer
In a way, BBCode is similar to RichText...it would be nice to have bullets (order/unordered), bold, italics, underline, etc...of course, none of these are required, just make writing/reading/organizing easier - brainno722 (Peter) from NoiseRiver
Y'all don't need shift-enter to post; you can just use the tab key to switch focus from the text box to the Post button. - Andrew C (✔)
Agree, brainno/Peter. What I was trying to post was, I don't want RichText controls (like those in Gmail) trying to give a WYSIWYG feel to posting comments. Just BBCode support will be enough to make my day. And Andrew... I blush with embarrasment on realizing that >.< - Pandu ● IT Optimizer
I disagree on displaying emoticon graphics by default. Sometimes, overzealous implementations interpret character combinations as emoticons, when they're unwanted (e.g. when pasting the output of a CLI application in a comment, or anything containing ":P" without being padded by a space). - Tyson Key
Line breaks, some HTML, etc. (but no emoticons) should be allowed on the first comment, i.e. like a blog post. - Kol Tregaskes
yes. please. - Harini Calamur
If a reason against line breaks is that it might be harder to distinguish comment boundaries, using alternating color blocks could address that. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I think linebreaks would take something away from FriendFeed. Linebreaks in comments enforce conciseness and "scannability". Like Twitter's 140 chars, but better, because you still can make a coherent argument. I don't have any trouble with this kind of intermediate form between microblogging (twitter) and normal blogging. What we really need is a blogging platform as fast as FriendFeed. :) - Meryn Stol

Forget aspirin – big thighs could be key to beating heart disease -
            Science, News - The Independent
"Big thighs might confer a health benefit according to a study showing that people with small thighs run a higher-than-average risk of developing heart disease and an early demise. Scientists have found that men and women whose thighs are less than 60cm (23.6ins) in circumference are more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease, and die prematurely, compared to people with thicker thighs. They also found, however, that the apparent advantage of bigger thighs did not continue beyond the 60cm threshold. People with thighs much wider than 60cm did not fair any better than those whose thighs hovered just above the threshold. The study, published in the British Medical Journal, is the first to link the size of the upper thigh to the risk of heart disease and premature death. The finding could lead to a medical test based on thigh size as an indicator of a person's risk of developing heart problems in later life, in much the same way that body mass index is seen as an indicator of cardiovascular risk." - RAPatton from Bookmarklet

""We found that having smaller thighs was associated with development of cardiovascular morbidity [illness] and early mortality.... General practitioners could use thigh circumference as an early marker to identify patients at later risk of cardiovascular disease and early mortality," they say. They also suggest that exercising the legs and lower body to increase thigh size could be a... more... - RAPatton

Sounds like bad science to me. Other cultures have skinny thighs and very low occurrence of heart disease. Its all in your genes baby!!! - Mel Buckpitt
Damn. I'm 1" under. I'm going to die. - Lola Bean (Penguin)
That's a crock. My thighs are way under that measurement. If they were that big I'd be unable to buy clothes. How tall, how heavy on average are these people? - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

A single person can possibly lead a far more peaceful and satisfying life if he or she sets her mind to it than many married couples. Every evening as dusk sets in, he sits in his rocking chair nursing a Scotch and listening to old Hindi film songs. The day I last saw him in Hyderabad, the strains of Mohammed Rafi's Dekhi zamane ki yaari…bichchde sabhi baari-baari….impregnated the air. But, instead of the melancholia that drips from Guru Dutt's sets in Kagaz ke Phool, there was a calm surrounding Jyotirmaya, a sense of peace and a day well spent. No broken heart here, just a man unwinding after a day at work…. His dinner is ready and waiting, his next choice out of a collection of 3000 movies in the DVD player, awaiting the click of a remote button. A book lies next to his bed in what seems to be exactly the position he left off reading it the night before. No female presence or kiddie clutter disturbs the even tenor of his existence. Life is the way he loves it… Cut to another home...

Untouchabilty alive and kicking in India - http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/NEWS...
More than 60 years after Independence, untouchability is alive and thriving in India's hinterlands. Pockets of social change have been but mere drops in an ocean of casteism and prejudice.
it is sad that the media has been silent about it for the last decade or show. case after case would tell you about the rampant casteism in the country - but, the trouble is they are not the target audience for mainstream media. - Harini Calamur

Finally: A Screenwriting App For Your iPhone!
"Well, this was sort of inevitable, and yet it had never even occurred to us: Screenplay is a $2.99 app for the iPhone, and has all the basic functionality of Final Draft: It offers formatting, scene elements, auto-complete character names, pagination and scene re-ordering. Mitigate the shame of being one of those “laptops in coffeeshops” people, as you apply the final touches to your third draft punch-up while everyone else assumes you’re playing Enviro-Bear 2000. (No idea if it accepts Final Draft files.) Just remember, kids: screendriving is dangerous and against the law! [iPhoneAppReviews.net]" - vimoh from Bookmarklet

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media: Guest Post by Gaurav Mishra: The 4Cs Social Media Framework
Instead of getting distracted by the tools and the terminologies, I focus on the four underlying themes in social media, the 4Cs of social media: Content, Collaboration, Community and Collective Intelligence. Taken together, these four themes constitute the value system of social media. I believe that the tools are transient, the buzzwords will change, but the value system embedded in these 4Cs is here to stay. So, let’s look at these 4Cs in some detail. - Mahendra (SkepticGeek) from Bookmarklet
I absolutely love this graphic - I've seen it before. It says so much so clearly. Lots to think about regarding the visible to invisible axis and the easy to difficult axis. Although with the latter, I think a distinction needs to be made between content consumption (easy) and content creation (not as easy). - Laura Norvig
