You're welcome[edit]

I routinely add blank lines (which by the way are completely invisible to the reader and therefore irrelevant to MOS) because they might be useful at some point to some editor—or so y'all tell me, via talk page and email. If there's a policy or guideline indicating they should be removed (or consensus that I should stop), please share. --Brogo13 (talk) 22:40, 17 January 2020 (UTC) p.s.

Again, they're invisible to the reader and therefore irrelevant to MOS—in my opinion. --Brogo13 (talk) 19:26, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
Brogo13, I can't understand why this would be helpful or why there is a dispute here. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 19:08, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
Why is this (adding any particular blank line) helpful to any particular editor? Follow the see and also links in my edit summary and they'll explain. There is no dispute here; the lines are still gone from this article, and I simply avoid both His Highness and His subjects (aeronautics). --Brogo13 (talk) 20:38, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
  • I followed the links before and now but never could find clear reasons related to Wikipedia polices and guidelines. This is a retain existing formatting thing, in my opinion. -Fnlayson (talk) 20:49, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
You're welcome.
Again.

That seems overly detailed and from a self-published source. A neutral 3rd party source would be much better. -Fnlayson (talk) 17:03, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
