grumbling about text formatting 

Plain text is a great format because it trivially adapts to the formatting the reader chooses.

Hard wrapping lines to 72/80/100/120/n characters actively goes against that. Now your text wastes space on larger displays *and* requires horizontal scrolling on smaller ones.

Please stop doing that.

Of course, this example COULD be re-wrapped at display time, assuming \n\n represents a paragraph break.

@TerryHancock @emily Is there any standard command that does it for you?
