Hello,

I created a body of text in Open Office Writer and tried to post it as a question on the website Less Wrong. A moderator rejected it for, as well as something else, whitespace formatting issues. Looking at it this problem seems to be that extra empty lines are put in when the document is Copied and Pasted to the website., as well as that horizontal lines across the page become blank lines,

Yours Sincerely​​​​​​​
Windows / Firefox 91.0

Hi,

When pasting your text, right click and select Paste as plain text or press CTRL+SHIFT+V on your keyboard. If that doesn't work, paste your text in Notepad, copy it, then paste it on the website.
