When we write a forum or question, we have the option of further explaining the topic in the details below (for questions, I believe there's a word limit of 600). For creating new forums, we're free to separate paragraphs, thus dividing the text and making it more manageable.
However, in question details, regardless of how you format your words, once posted they're jammed into one big unappealing paragraph. For longer questions that approach the word limit, a simple break could really help manage the clusters of text. Heck, I've divided this entry into two paragraphs; imagine how it'd look as one humongous detail-monster.
