    I do, too. I don't have a smart phone so I wouldn't know, but I was assuming it had something to do with posting a review with a smart phone. Is that something you can do on BA?

    If my phone were in school, it would currently be repeating the fifth grade.

    It's readable... not sure what the problem is?

    This appeared after a recent update. Seems to be impacting those who are copying and pasting from programs like Word. I plan on looking into it, but it's a very low priority.

    That's weird, I copy & paste all my reviews from word without a problem. Maybe it's certain versions of Word or something.

    That's my thinking.

    I typed this review. No copy paste and it has the extra break.

    I believe this has to do with an extra space after the period. When I type I will automatically hit the space bar after a period before hitting enter to make a break.

    If you get rid of these extra spaces the review should look "normal".

    Just say no to workarounds.

    I think it occurs most when someone adds a brand new beer to the database. Both the review I pasted and leedorham's one are new additions and display the extra spacing.

    Here is a review that I added to the database before the changes and it is having the same issue.

    I checked other new listings I did before the changes and the same issue is occuring in all of them.

    That's just a coincidence. It's occurring with subsequent reviews of beers (and places) too.

    I'll fix it when I get a chance. It's just a CSS line break glitch.

    This should be "fixed" now.

    Do a hard-refresh on your browser if needed.
