    The newline is rendered within the code tag.

    On other threads debating the same issue, I've seen some going as far as to suggest wrapping their entire post in code so as to resolve the problem. Better than having to insert HTML after every paragraph, but not a real solution.

    If there is any purpose whatsoever for maintaining the necessity for manually inserting paragraph breaks, I'd sure be interested in knowing what that might be. Is there really anyone that considers this to be a necessary feature, rather than an annoyance?

    Could we have an actual vote on that?

    Though I suspect people who have actually found it to be intolerable over the years, are no longer around to cast a ballot.

      Writing all your comments must have taken far more time than installing the proposed workaround: Good Intentions: Wikisyntax for the Monastery. Install it and use double enter to separate paragraphs:

      It's so simple!

      map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
